Frustrating error on an almost regular basis


I'm starting to get an error on a weekly basis and the only resolution I have is to shut down SAS and start again which can be frustrating when some programs take several hours to run.

Can anyone she some light on it if possible to try and prevent it from happening.


ERROR: Read Access Violation In Task [ Enhanced Editor )

If I then try to look at a work library dataset I get an error pop up which states:

SAS should never abend. For issues like this, the best way to get a solution is to open a track with Technical Support. They have the best tools to analyze the problem and offer a quick solution.
