Errors

This section documents warnings and errors generated by this task (if any). Note that warnings and errors can also be generated in the SAS infrastructure libraries, in which case they would not be documented here. Refer to the index of all errors and warnings available in the HTML version of the SAS documentation.

DSSbitTypeerror 
 Column must be an integer for bit mask filters
 
BlockSpecerror 
 File/block specification is not in a format supported by the data subspace. The deprecated forms using [] or + cannot be used with the data subspace.
 
DssRefClasherror 
 The filter references different blocks (referring to different block filters) with the same name. The data subspace cannot be written.
 
DssBlockClashwarning 
 Name clash while writing Data Subspace. Block already exists in output data set.
corrective action: The block is renamed.
 
NoFiltererror 
 Filter not found in data subspace component.
 
NoRangeerror 
 No range information available for this filter type.
 
DSextentTypeerror 
 The filter is not of a type for which a determination of the extent is supported (eg. a mask filter)
 
DSextentGTIerror 
 The argument of the extent command does not correspond to the name of the GTI filter being queried.
 
DSextentRangeerror 
 The argument of the extent command does not correspond to the name of the Range filter being queried.
 
DSextentRegionerror 
 The argument of the extent command does not correspond to the name of one of the components of the Region filter.
 
NoMaskerror 
 No bit mask information available for this filter type.
 
NoRegionerror 
 No region information available for this filter type.
 
NoBlockerror 
 No block information available for this filter type.
 
BlockTypeGtierror 
 Block type is not compatible with the gti filter type.
 
BlockTypeMaskerror 
 Block type is not compatible with the mask filter type.
 
DSSblockTypeerror 
 The filter type for the specified block could not be determined.
 
MaskTypeerror 
 Mask array is not of a supported data type.
 
DSStypeerror 
 Incompatible data types for DSS and column specifications.
 
BlockTypeRangeerror 
 Block type is not compatible with the range filter type.
 
RangeTypeerror 
 Columns are not of a supported data type for a range specification.
 
BlockTypeRegionerror 
 Block type is not compatible with the region filter type.
 
ColumnClasherror 
 Data subspace filter name and column name are not consistent. Cannot write data subspace.
 
BadRegionFiltererror 
 A data subspace filter with a region specification has been found. This type of filter is not supported.
 
BitVolwarning 
 Cannot calculate volume for a bit mask filter.
corrective action: Zero volume returned for this filter type.
 
RangeVolwarning 
 Cannot calculate volume of a range specification with only one limit.
corrective action: Zero volume is returned for this filter.
 
DSStypeTruncatewarning 
 Real-valued ranges are used for an integer-valued column.
corrective action: Real-valued ranges are truncated to integers.
 
DssSyntaxErrorerror 
 The parser was not able to parse the selection expression so as to convert it to a data subspace specification.
 
ArithmeticExceptionerror 
 An illegal arithmetic operation was specified in the selection expression.
 
MaskSpecOffseterror 
 A mask filter was specified with a non-zero offset. The data subspace is only able to store masks with a zero offset.
 
DssNameMismatcherror 
 Name of coordinate axes in region filter do not match that of preceding filter in same component. See section on ``Tips and Grouping of Region Functions'' to find out how to avoid this error.
 
BitMaskTestingerror 
 Bit mask filter must be tested against ``== 0''. This syntax, along with the equivalent syntax ``!(mask!==0)'', are the only two that are supported.
 
DssFitsWritewarning 
 The data subspace indexing has become to large to fit into keywords of the from nDSVALn (keywords can be on more than 8 characters). Thus no filter information can be written to the FITS header for the filter in question.
corrective action: No data subspace information is written for the given filter.
