Note 1, I believe is referring to a datastep trying to do a PUT to a
page line in excess of the number of lines defined on the FILE statement
Note 2 means SAS is trying to read an external file but the input
statement has gone beyond the end of the line. Depending on the data
structure, you may want to use the LRECL and/or MISSOVER options on

Subject: Notes in log file
I'm an inexperienced SAS user. Recently, I had the following two notes
in my log file that I don't recall seeing before.
Note 1 says: invalid data errors for file ... occurred outside the print
range. Increase available buffer lines with the INFILE n= option.
Note 2 says: SAS went to a new line when INPUT statement reached past
the end of a line.
Does anybody out there understand what these notes mean? Can I trust
the results I have in the output file?
Thank you all in advance.
