error message

Hi all,

sas 9.4 was just installed and I am getting this error message after I ran a small program. Could anyone help me understand (please see below)what that means? Thanks in advance!

 

ERROR: Expecting page 1, got page -1 instead.

ERROR: Page validation error while reading SASUSER.PROFILE.CATALOG.

ERROR: Expecting page 1, got page -1 instead.

ERROR: Page validation error while reading SASUSER.PROFILE.CATALOG

Re: error message

It usually helps to post program code along with the errors.

 

However you can get messages about SASUSER.Profile if there are two sessions of SAS trying to run at the sametime. Try shutting down SAS and restarting. Look in the log for any messages about the SASUSER.Profile.

Re: error message

This is the error message and notes I get when I first restart sas and also when I first opened it:

ERROR: Expecting page 1, got page -1 instead.

ERROR: Page validation error while reading SASUSER.PROFILE.CATALOG.

NOTE: Unable to open SASUSER.PROFILE. WORK.PROFILE will be opened instead.

NOTE: All profile changes will be lost at the end of the session.

NOTE: Unable to open SASUSER.PROFILE. WORK.PROFILE will be opened instead.

And this was the sas program I tried:

 

libaname a 'path';

 

data test;

 set a.datasetname;

if test='xx';

run;

 

I did get the right dataset 'test'.

Re: error message

Try just deleting the catalog file in Windows Explorer, then restart SAS. You can find out the folder where SASUSER is pointing by checking the properties of SASUSER in the SAS Explorer.
