Subject: Question on SAS warning re 'options ignored for base data set'
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
Hi all. First post to this list, and I have only been using SAS for 6
months - pardon if I show any ignorance.
Using SAS on the mainframe my JCL job finishes with a return of "CC
0004" which I believe is trying to signal me to the below warning - the
snippit below is from the job's output. Is there a way within the SAS
code I can reset the return state to "normal aka CC 0000" after this
block of code executes since it is not a real problem, or should I
rephrase the code below? The job is generating the desired output
correctly. I have books on MVS and SAS that I have been digesting,
feel free to point me to topics/keywords to better read up on.
