error with data _null_ dcl odsout obj() in 9.3

I'm using SAS 9.3 TS Level 1M2 with tableeditor (modified 4/18/2012).
After running this piece of code I receive the error below.
This code runs without an error in SAS 9.2.

data _null_;
dcl odsout obj();
obj.table_start(name: "Stock",
overrides: "width=95pct");
obj.row_start();
obj.format_cell(data: "Injury Snapshot ~n (Data updated &month2. &day1., &year1.)",
        column_span: 4,
overrides: "backgroundcolor=BIGB color=white font_size=12pt font_weight=bold");
obj.row_end();
obj.table_end();
run;

Hi:

  Generally, when something works in one release of SAS, but not another release, that is an indication that you should call Tech Support. And, another indicator of when to call Tech Support is when you get Fatal errors in running code. So now you have 2 reasons to call Tech Support.
