Errors while running Schedule Jobs in SAS EG 7.1

I am trying to create and run schedules job on SAS EG 7.13. Code is very basic as the current goal is to ensure that I am able to run scheduled jobs

 

The job is not running and the history tab has the error with Launch Failure.

 

I tried to run the vb script directly from the saved location and get the below error

 

Error # 80004003

In Function Container.Run

Object Reference not set to an instance of an object

 

I have already tried various things from online with no success. Any suggestions are appreciated

Hi @Pranav_

 

Not sure if you are still experiencing the described issue, if yes let me try to help you.

 

First, did you get a chance to review Usage Note 56648 (Tips for scheduling a SAS® Enterprise Guide® project)?

This would be the starting point, assuming the project runs successfully interactively.

 

Also, please enable the log as per Usage Note 55414 (Enabling logging in SAS® Enterprise Guide® 7.1 and later).

When you try to execute the scheduled project, do you see further details in the log ?

 

Are you able to run another *.vbs file, not created by EG ?

If that works, go back to the script created by EG, edit it (with Notepad for instance) and enable the error message box that is commented out at the end of the file. Remove the single quote before the line: MsgBox strmsg. If any messages appear in a pop-up dialog box, please share it with us.

 

Hope that helps.


Cheers,
Damo

Hi @Pranav_

 

Thanks.

What about other points I mentioned (the 2 SAS-Notes and testing a sample vbs not created by EG ?

Hi @Damo

 

Yes , I have run the other steps(SAS notes) as well and verified the same. I am able to create a vb script directory and run it

 

The error remains same as in the previous post

Hi @Pranav_

 

In that case, i would encourage you to raise a track with your local Technical Support.

You can share logs, review Event Viewer, etc.
