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.

noEventserror 
 No EVENTS extension in input data set
 
noPatternerror 
 No PATTERN column in input data set
 
noPierror 
 No PI column in input data set
 
emptyInputerror 
 No events in input data set
 
isnotEPICerror 
 Instrument is not EPIC, model curves are available only for EPIC
 
noSignalerror 
 No net signal in input set. Wrong backscal parameter ?
 
noSignalwarning 
 "No net signal in observed-to-model fractions band. Wrong energy range ?
corrective action: set appropriate energy band
 
noRAWXwarning 
 No RAWX column in input data set
corrective action: continue
 
noRAWYwarning 
 No RAWY column in input data set
