Calcite | Level 5

Hi everyone,

I try to create a PDF file with ODS, and when try to plot with "Proc Sgplot"  the output windows show me the next sentence:


"java.lang.NumberFormatException: empty String"


So, in the PDF file created that graph disappear, but for the tables (with proc report) and graphs (with proc gchart)  works fine!


I hope you can help me with this, Thanks.

Sounds like a Java incompatibility.  Make sure the version of Java installed is appropriate for your SAS installation.
