I got SAS recently installed and it was give me some startup problem initially. There was some problem with editor fonts which i guess did not get registered somehow and the program editor window was not opening.
I reinstalled SAS and program window appears but now I'm facing a strange problem. It shuts down when any excel / access file is imported either by code or by import wizard.
It doesn't shows any exception details. How can i fix this problem.

Also, this could be operating system related so which OS are you running?
