Warning symbol

The import Data icon shows a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. Does this mean my data was not imported properly? How do I fix this problem?

Thanks

Re: Warning symbol

The warning symbol says that there was a warning in the SAS log from the task. Open the log and examine the warning. Then you can make the appropriate changes. It could be trivial and it could also be that the import did not work the way you expected.

Re: Warning symbol

I had a similar problem. This may or may not be related:

Check to see if any of your variable names contain labels. It gets grumpy if it has to run the __EG_LABEL__ in your code. You can see this in your log. It's just a nuisance warning, though, and won't hurt anything.
"WARNING: The variable __EG_LABEL__ in the DROP, KEEP, or RENAME list has never been referenced."

Re: Warning symbol

You can turn these warnings off under Tools-->Options. I don't know which version of SAS you're running, but its buried somewhere in there.
