Trouble Shooting

         

Performing Analysis                                                                           Notes about these trouble-shooting aids

1. YOU RECEIVE A RED ERROR MESSAGE in the Log Window:
ERROR: Appendage SASXGSUB not found, unable to produce graphics.
ERROR: Unable to load graphics.

    Your computer apparently does not have SAS/GRAPH installed. Install this program.


2
. YOU RECEIVE ERROR MESSAGES in the Log Window:
WARNING: Physical file does not exist, C:\homepages\stats\DANDA.sas.
ERROR: Cannot open %INCLUDE file C:\homepages\stats\DANDA.sas.
WARNING: Apparent invocation of macro MMAOV not resolved

also might get this error:
ERROR 180-322: Statement is not valid or it is used out of proper order.

    The path name in your %INCLUDE statement is incorrect. Modify the statement to identify the correct location of       DANDA.sas. Or, did you remember to download DANDA.sas?

3. YOU RECEIVE RED ERROR MESSAGE in the Log Window:
ERROR: More positional parameters found than defined.

    You may have placed commas after a series of dependent variables. %MMAOV has two initial variables, the dataset name and dependent variables. There should only be one comma in between any two items.
For example, the following two statements are incorrect:
%MMAOV(one,Y1,Y2.....);      multiple dependent variables should not be separated by commas
%MMAOV(one,,Y1,Y2.....,);    do not use multiple commas or trailing commas

4. YOU RECEIVE RED ERROR MESSAGE in the Log Window:
ERROR: Variable xxxx not found.

    Check to make sure you used the correct %MMAOV statements for your dataset. For example, if you used the sampling plant dataset in a particular module but accidentally chose the sampling_covariate statements, SAS would not be able to find the covariate variable in the dataset. Also note that if you used the sampling plant dataset but accidentally chose the sampling animal statements, similarly, SAS could not find the variables.

    Check your spelling for the variable name identified in the Error message.
