Error

Hi,

I am getting this error message while exporting.

ERROR: DDE session not ready.
FATAL: Unrecoverable I/O error detected in the execution of the data step program.
Aborted during the EXECUTION phase.

Please let me know how to resolve this error.

Thanks,

Re: Error

You can start off by searching for the exact text of your error message at support.sas.com. I did and found a bunch of possible causes for that error..

Re: Error

Have you set the nowait/noxsync options if you're using DDE?

Also if the process is saving over a file and you say don't save or some other excel prompt comes up you may cause the session to be interrupted. I try and make sure Excel is closed, especially the file I'm working on when using DDE.

HTH,
Reeza
