SAS Exit Code 1 And 2

Hi All,


I am running SAS in Windows and I could not find much information other than "Unexpected Error" on the error/exit code 1 and 2? For jobs exited with code 1, I could not find any "error" keyword in the log file. Is it safe to assume the job ran fine?


Thank you for your input.

Re: SAS Exit Code 1 And 2

Both codes are inacceptable for batch jobs. Only a return code 0 should be accepted as successful.

1 points to WARNING, 2 points to an ERROR.

Inspect the logs and fix the causes for the messages.
