Re: Error Message - Limit set by errors

Cannot tell much from that other than to re-iterate what the log states, you are using LTV as a numeric variable and at row 5074 the compiler starts to find values which it cannot convert to number.  Check your data, maybe up to 5073 you have all numbers, then at that point you start to see 90-100, which isn't convertible to numeric.

Re: Error Message - Limit set by errors

You question is too tempting for some joke as answer, what about: "learning SAS"?
The code that is processing the data I not there, there is a mismatch on what you told it should read, what is read and what can be processed.
The error message on itself is simple you are reading data seeing some text and the instruction is it should be numeric.
It has read about 56k records the top is correct not having this..

- truncated records?

- misaligned by some other data coming in?

- multi-records as input processed but getting misaligned at some point?
