Subject:      Proc Format CNTIN= Problem
Content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

Hello,

I am receiving the following error when I attempt to create a format from the results of a proc contents

with the following code: proc format cntlin=b2;

ERROR: This range is repeated, or values overlap: .-..

There are 1,700+ variables in the data set, but all a valid SAS (v6.12) names.

The following is a snip of the proc contents I want to turn into a format.

The SAS System 1

OBS LABEL START FMTNAME TYPE

1 1 A10_1 nc n 2 1 A10_2 nc n 3 1 A10_3 nc n 4 1 A10_3V nc n 5 1 A10_4V nc n 6 2 A3_1_1 nc n 7 2 A3_1_2 nc n 8 2 A3_1_3 nc n 9 2 A3_1_4 nc n 10 2 A3_1_5 nc n
