I am in process of upgrading to SAS 9.2 (M2) on z/OS. One of the job writes to an Open ODS HTML successfully on SAS9.1.3 but can't on SAS9.2. The error i am getting is
"ERROR: AT LEAST ONE FILE ASSOCIATED WITH FILEREF OUTHTML IS STILL IN USE.
ERROR: ERROR IN THE FILENAME STATEMENT."
I have sorted out the problem by closing it off and reinitialising it. But i don't understand why i have to do this, given that i can't find any reference of making these changes in the first place. My only worry is that are there any more changes like this that i need to look at.
Need to see your SASLOG output when the error occurred. Also, ensure that you are current on SAS HOTFIX maintenance. It's quite possible that SAS tightened up open FILENAME allocations, but your SAS-generated log (with all SAS code revealed) will help explain more about the situation.
Also, check your FILELOCKS OPTIONS setting, new with SAS 9.2.
