Trouble-shooting Tips

You ran a SAS program, and got Error or Warning messages in the Log window. This page provides access to DAWG and other resources that may help.

The analysis modules have two pages that contain some trouble-shooting tips.
   red bullet Trouble reading data
   red bullet Trouble running an analysis

These speak to some common errors or misunderstandings: in many instances, things one of these modules' authors got wrong the first time through :~).

If your program does not run or if you get the dreaded red text, look through the trouble-shooting tips.
We decided that there are pros and cons to providing these tips.
      Pros: one of the tips may solve your problem
      Cons: it may be frustrating to find that none of the tips address your problem.

We cannot anticipate everything that might go wrong -- if you are a student and cannot solve a SAS problem with the tips, contact your instructor. If you are a researcher, we suggest trying the SAS help utilities or contacting a fellow P.I. with SAS experience.

As a last resort, you may contact SAS Institute for user support.
