Close your session completey, open a new fresh session, run your program up to that point.  I.e. test its not just something clogged up in your session.  Re-run your code, do it step by step, make sure everything needed for the step is present - i.e. no errors/warnings, data present etc, so the code should function.  Etc. debug as far as you can.

 

If it does it again, then I would suggest doing as the text states, contact technical support with that information. Could be any number of things.

Does it happen everytime you run the code or is it a one time occurence? Also, without the code, there's no way to tell what the issue might be.

HI Reeza,

 

It is happening with certain specific data but not with every input  data. So, trying to find out the reason and pattern which is causing this issue:

Below is the SAS code, which i am trying to execute:

libname test "C:\Rajesh\HRA\AL_CERT\Input_May_06\test_datasets";

PROC TRANSPOSE DATA= test.ac_cert_check OUT=al_cert_check_tr;
BY A--AE;
VAR AF--JW;
RUN;

 

For reference, I have attached the input dataset.

 

Regards,

Rajesh
