Share your SAS code along with the SAS-generated log output showing the error as it appears. You will get the most expedient and accurate reply when you consider these suggestions with any future posts as well -- also to include your SAS version, OS platform, whether SAS is installed locally or on a SAS server, and whether the related SAS code piece has ever worked or not in the past.
