I've run into a similar problem with SAS on the VAX, so the solution may be similar. Disk space was not the problem--the problem was the amount of memory allocated to the account, and the problem could not be solved within SAS itself. Rather, I had to request that one of our VMS programmers increase the page size quota for the account. If that doesn't work by itself, you may also need to consider the virtual page count.
