_LAST_

Hi,

 

I am getting this error.  Can anyone explain to me what is this and how to fix it? 

 

ERROR: Invalid option value LIBRARY.'DATASET'n for SAS option _LAST_.

Re: _LAST_

If you think the name is valid then check if the string is macro quoted. You migth need to use %unquote() to remove the macro quoting to get the SAS parser to interpret the statement properly.

Disregard.  The issue I was thinking of was with the value EG was setting to SYSLAST when you explicitly link a data set to a program in a process flow. (EG sets the SYSLAST macro to the linked data set in this case.)  I second posting your log.

 

What is the exact version of EG (listed in EG's Help->About dialog) you are using?  I seem to recall this being a bug at one point that was fixed.
