Probably a missing semicolon in your code above that.  Share your entire log for better diagnosis.

Do you have any code set to automatically run before your programs, such as an autoexec or a run on startup for the project?

FYI...I had a colleague who was getting 180-322 on an Enterprise Guide submitted program right at line one for the auto submitted code ;*';*";*/;quit;run;. Reeza, your comment definitely helped. I suggested he check his autoexec and also if he had anything in the EG options to autosubmit code. He had the EG Program option checked to run some code before connecting to server that was causing the error. We added run; quit; to the end of that and it worked (it was a simple %let statement). 

 

If you're running a program in EG and getting 180-322 on the first line of code, I'd definitely check any auto-submitted code.
