Distribution Option unavailable in FMM

Dear members,

I am currently working on the FMM procudure.  

According to documaentation below, multinomial and multinomial cluster distribution are available in FMM model statements.

(http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/statug/67523/HTML/default/viewer.htm#statug_fmm_syntax09...)

 

However I found that those options are unavaile as below. 

 

My code: 

PROC FMM Data = Data criterion = AIC;
model response = IPT AvgPrice age / DIST = mclus kmin=1 kmax= 5;
RUN;

 

Error:

ERROR 22-322: Syntax error, expecting one of the following: BERNOULLI, BETA, BETABIN,
BETABINOMIAL, BIN, BINARY, BINOMCLUS, BINOMCLUSTER, BINOMIAL, BINOMIALCLUS,

TRUNCNEGBIN, TRUNCNORMAL, TRUNCPOISSON, UNIF, UNIFORM, WEIB, WEIBULL.
76: LINE and COLUMN cannot be determined.

 

multinomial and mclus distribution do not exists according to error messages. 

What makes my program different from guidbook? How can I fix this problem? 

I am looking forward your kind advice. Thank you.

Re: Distribution Option unavailable in FMM

Most likely reason: According to the doc, the DIST=MCLUS option was added in SAS/STAT 13.2, but you are not running SAS/STAT 13.2.

 

According to this blog post, SAS/STAT 13.2 was released with SAS 9.4m2.  You can determine your version of SAS by submitting

%put &=SYSVLONG;

The result is in the SAS log. If you see a value less than 9.04.01M2... then you are not running a version of SAS that supports that option.
