You don't give nearly enough information. to even try and trace this one would need to know the size and other characteristics of the input data step, including how it was created, if it has indexes, is it actually a view, as well as the exact code you've used to read it, plus any additional information that may be relevant.

With this sort of error though, I'd suggest going to SAS technical support as the first line of action.
