Do you try to write code with no WARNING messages and are frustrated when you get the following message in the log even though the code is fine?


WARNING 32-169: The quoted string currently being processed has 
   become more than 262 characters long.  You may have 
   unbalanced quotation marks.


If so, check out the QUOTELENMAX/NOQUOTELENMAX system option. This option is particularly appropriate when you have long text strings in, for example, an ODS HTML TEXT statement.


proc print;
 title "Shoe Sales Data";
 ods html text="A very long text message . . . . . . that exceeds the length";
