Error mesasge

Hi,

I am getting this error message in IML when I am ready to use the data:

data UTIL_WHOLESALE;

set sqldb3.utilshare_wholesale_02;

proc sort; by cCom;

run;

proc iml;

/* GET DATA */

    use UTIL_WHOLESALE;

    read all var{elec_w} into elec_w;

    read all var{fuel_w} into fuel_w;

Error is in using the UTIL_WHOLESALE;

1199  /* GET DATA */

1200

1201      use UTIL_WHOLESALE;

          ---

          180

ERROR 180-322: Statement is not valid or it is used out of proper order.

Any thoughts!

Re: Error mesasge

That's the kind of error you would get if you omit the PROC IML statement.

The syntax you've posted seems to be correct. The following works for me. See if you can reproduce the error with some data set in the SASHELP library:

data UTIL_WHOLESALE;

set sashelp.class;

proc sort; by age;

run;

proc iml;

/* GET DATA */

use UTIL_WHOLESALE;

read all var{height} into height;

read all var{weight} into weight;

Re: Error mesasge

Try PROC CONTENTS or PROC PRINT. Maybe the data is corrupted?
