Data Partition Node SAS EM

I cant get the data partition node to work (i.e. partition my data)


It works for one of my data set but not for the others... for those that dont work it gives an error that says "Invalid segmentation level"


What does this mean?  Is something wrong with my dataset?



I get the error with the dataset attached called "small"!

Small is a reduced size version of the original dataset!

I tested your data with EM 12.3. The partition runs fine.

I did not find any message from SAS support KB or google.com. I suspect you may be using one old EM version 5.2 or...? Let me know.
