I haven't seen this problem before. (At least, not with SAS 9.1.x -
don't ask about using the experimental version of PROC SURVEYFREQ in
SAS 9.0 !)
How big are your input data sets?
How big are the tables you are creating? (r by c <by...>)
How many tables are you trying to create at one time?
Have you talked to your SAS site rep or SAS tech support about this?
