SAS 9.4 M7 on AIX.

When I create a dataset in an encrypted meta-bound library, the NOTE

NOTE: This metadata-bound library requires AES encryption with its recorded key. The recorded algorithm is used.

is displayed in a darker green in Enterprise Guide's log and causes EG to think it's a WARNING.

If the dataset is created from SQL, &SYSCC is even set to 4(!) for no particular reason.


Is this behavior documented anywhere, and is there a method to stop it (especially the SYSCC=4 from SQL)?

Sounds like an error that a NOTE registers as a warning. Have you tried checking the value of &syswarningtext when it happens?


Perhaps you can make a workaround like

%if &syscc=4 and %substr(&syswarningtext,1,4)=NOTE %then
  %let Syscc=0;

But you may want to take it up with SAS Support, if you haven't already.
