Thanks for a quick reply Tammie,
some updates which I'll copy to SAS/L:
. We can edit the SCL directly, that's why it fails to compile since it
has labels for widgets it doesn't know about unless you open it within the
. We ran Proc Datasets to repair the catalogue, no errors reported, still
can't edit source.
. Copied the frame and entry to another name, still can't open the SCL
source within the frame.
. Explicitly associated the Frame with each copy of the SCL, still can't
open within it.
. Deleted the SCL source, this should present a blank SCL screen when you
ask to edit source. Still the same message, 'No SOURCE available'.
. Other entries in the same catalog have been edited successfully before
and after dealing with this entry, so it is not a file level lock.
. Opened the Frame within the wonderful QUALEX tool CATALOGR, we could
see the frame, the widgets, the SCL, but if we went to Build we got the same
Nothing on Usage notes, nothing relevant found on SAS Tech support site
Our last thoughts are to document the frame with CATALOGR, delete it and
recreate it. Then copy/paste the SCL into a new SCL entry. We do not
believe it is a problem with the SCL, but are getting nowhere with the
FRAME. We are looking at half a days work to redraw the frame from scratch
with all sizing and positioning correct and consistent within the
application. We'd love a simpler solution.
