In-Reply-To: "email@example.com" <firstname.lastname@example.org> "Re: How can I get
the value of an SAS-AF object in a dataset ?" (Oct 2, 2:54pm)
I'm really fishing here...
I have been trying to bebug a frame application over the past couple of days.
The SCL for this frame contains a number of labeled sections and,
consequently, a number of LINKS. The symptom of the problem I'm having is that
is called up twice (eventhough I had made a selection from the first appearance
of this list) and then I experience a PROGRAM HALT. Now it appears to me that
SAS is losing track of the links and is actually RETURNing to the wrong part of
the calling section (i.e. back to the LINK rather than the next statement). I
am putting flags all over the place to identify the calling sections and am
"watching" the values of key variables via the debugger, etc. to try to nail
down the problem before I superstitiously resort to converting some of these
labeled sections into modules (since I know that there is a limit to levels of
LINKS you can have in one program, although I would have expected an error
message of some sort).
Any other advice out there from the AF experts?
