proc append

Hi everyone,

There are two large datasets that I want to concatenate. But because the length of variables in two datasets are different I used Force option. So here is the code:

proc append base=All_1994 data=All_1995 force ; 

run;

However I got the following in log window:

4613  proc append base=All_1994 data=All_1995 force;

1    +;

      -

      10

ERROR 10-205: Expecting the name of the procedure to be executed.

180: LINE and COLUMN cannot be determined.

NOTE: NOSPOOL is on. Rerunning with OPTION SPOOL might allow recovery of the LINE and COLUMN

      where the error has occurred.

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

4614

4615  run;

      ---

      180

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

I appreciate your suggestions.

Re: proc append

Restart SAS and re-run. Most likely you had an error in a previous line of code that is still hanging around unresolved.
