|Subject: ||Number of Format statements in a datastep limited under Windows?|
|Content-Type: ||text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1|
Posted for a friend.
Running a piece of code, originally developed under Unix, under
Windows. The dataset has >7,000 fields, which need to be formatted.
However, only 4,096 format statements will load without crashing the
datastep. It works OK without the format statements. I can't find any
reference to an OS-specific limit on number of format statements.
