Subject:   Odd error message re Unix filename
Content-Type:   text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1

I'm stumped on why I'm getting an error message for the first filename but not for the second in the code below. I've tried changing the filename but get the same error message. Both files are small text files. Any ideas? I'm running SAS version 8.0. I changed first part of path name to xxxx for the example.

Thanks, Sharon Ryan
