Subject: SAS 6.10 | UNIX | point option
This is driving me nuts, and after RTFM, I still can't figure it out.
I want to sample with replacement from a data set. I use the following
set test point=pt nobs=nobs;
if n>=11 then stop;
Now, this work 100% perfectly when I run this under Windows/95 - using
SAS 6.10, 6.11 or 6.12.
However, as soon as I try to run this exact same code under UNIX (IRIX
5.4 on an SGI workstation), I get the following error message:
ERROR: The POINT= data set option is not valid for the data set
data set must be accessible by observation number for POINT=
NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors.
NOTE: SAS set option OBS=0 and will continue to check statements.
This may cause NOTE: No observations in data set.
So what gives? As I note above, I can't find ANYTHING in the SAS UNIX
companion that gives me any clue whatsoever.
Thanks much in advance...
