I was so distracted by SAS/ACCESS for PC File Formats not working that I
forgot to mention this. As you write only option 2) works. I got a chuckle
out of 3) as well.

Subject: V8.1 err msg: font MIA
This qualifies as an intelligent error message:
"The SAS system could not get metrics for the font "SAS Monospace".
This failure is probably caused by the font being corrupted
or by Windows being low on virtual memory.
Possible solutions for the problem include:
1) double-clicking on the font in the Control Panel's fonts window,
2) rebooting the Windows system, or
3) uninstalling and reinstalling the SAS System."
Oh, did I mention this is the NEW AND IMPROVED V8.1 aka 8e?!
NOTE: SAS (r) Proprietary Software Release 8.1 (TS1M0)
option 1 didn't work
option 2 rebooting succeeding in eliminating this message
option 3: I don't _think_ so! PuuuuLease!*!
It took _me_ several hours to install V8.1.
that was coming off my site's intranet, some ten miles down the road.
