error message in sas DI studio

in source editor i wrote following proc step.....

proc sql;
select inbound_ind from testing.act_2;
quit;

/* testing : name of library
act_2 : name of table
inbound_ind : name of column */

when i run this proc step i get one error message like
"An error occured while attempting to the retrieve the output :
some code points did not transcode"

i checked output window ..nothing is displayed in output window.
i checked log window .. no error is in log window.

then what is means ERROR MESSAGE WINDOWS which display when i run this proc step......

one more thing for rest all columns this proc step is running without displaying error message window.

structure of table "act_2" is

Re: error message in sas DI studio

You are most likely running into having some special char echoed from your workspace server, which interrupts the communication. This could rely on what encoding you are using. Search on "TRANSCODE" on support.sas.com. See if can somthing there which applies to your situation. If not, open a track to SAS tech support.
