I'm getting this message while trying to parse a ~2GB CSV file using UNIX SAS 9.4.

With code there is a chance we could identify some problem that might cause that message. Without not much to guess from.

 

By any chance did you try to use Proc Import and see if that would work? If so you might want to start with the data step code generated by import and modify as needed. If you go this route I suggest setting a large value for guessingrows to get the best fit for your data.

 

 

The size of the CSV file probably doesn't have an impact though there is a possibility that content might.
