I suspect this is not the full log, because of the note in the log:

NOTE: Writing HTML Body file: sashtml.htm

Do you have "ODS HTML", somewhere in your program, previous to calling PROC FREQ?

Do you use PROC DELETE or PROC DATASETS ... DELETE in the program?

One possible cause for these errors is a lack of WORK disk space. Does your SAS session run locally on your PC or on a remote SAS server? If it is on your PC check your hard drive for the amount of free space. For a remote SAS server you will need to talk to your SAS administrator.
