Often it means that you have multiplied two numbers which are each more than half the maximum size supported on your platform. The largest value on MVS is roughly 7*10**16. Thus if you multiple 7*10**15 by 100, there is no way for SAS to store the result.

Sent by:Dan Zhang <zhang02@ASSETS.WHARTON.UPENN.EDU> What does "Floating Point Overflow" mean? I got this message from the SAS-Log file and my SAS program stopped at this point. How can I avoid this problem?

Thanks for the help.
