Subject: CREATE TABLE recursively references the target table
.. The warning is easy to reproduce, e.g. with
create table test as select *
WARNING: This CREATE TABLE statement recursively references the target
table. A consequence of this is a possible data integrity problem.
Normally, I would take a SAS warning seriously - ignoring this one, however,
I've never really run into data integrity problems of any obvious,
Can anyone offer insight, or a counter-example?
