Subject:      Beware this non-error SQL error
Content-type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1

Just a quick heads-up to those of you with error-scanning programs/functions that I have just run across the following missed error. This was a V8 batch job creating SAS datasets from Oracle tables using PROC SQL. It was a simple pull without any joins or conditions. Here is the only indication of failure I received:

--------------- Segmentation Violation In Task ( SQL ] Fault Occurred at [0x103ebc54(?)]

Task Traceback

sqxcrta -- bridge stub sqlloop -- bridge stub NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors. Stack overflow detected In Task ( SQL ] Fault Occurred at [0x103ebc54(?)]

272 quit; ---------------

But check-out the notes at the end of my job:

--------------- NOTE: SAS Institute Inc., SAS Campus Drive, Cary, NC USA 27513-2414 NOTE: The SAS System used: real time 28:01.32 cpu time 12:47.91 ---------------

Except for the simple note about "stopped processing" there is no other "typical" indication that an error occurred. Looks like I need to add "stopped processing" when scanning for "errors".
