ERROR: Conversation termination; status=1.

I get this error when I'm trying to run my SAS program on a remote server. The program crashes when it tries to save 35000 positions from a dataset to an Excel file. When only selecting the 10 first observations, the crash doesn't happen.


According to the documentation:

Increasing the CPUTIMEMAX value might help you to avoid this problem. You can change the parameter for an individual user ID in the Open MVS segment that defines the user ID. You can change the parameter for all user IDs in the BPXPRM00 member in SYS1.PARMLIB.


Do I need to contact a SAS admin for this or can I do this myself?
