eh, turn off all your macro statements generating options
options nomprint nomacrogen nosymbolgen;
by the way all those no-* options were the defaults
you are not, by chance, running a test in production mode?
you really do not want to do this:
options nonotes nosource nosource2;
but, rest assured when SAS decides to write an error message
it ignores all those options and writes it to the log anyway.
You load the cannon,
you aid the cannon at your foot
you ooops! the cannon
then your task is:
"Ah, which step generated this error?!"
better: deconstruct your program into modules and run each in batch
