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.

No action required. Defaults used.
  The binning of the final response matrix with the parameter rmfgrid, is different from that found as the number for rows, in one of the input individual response matrices
  The number of response matrix files does not match the number of spectrum files; there must be a one-to-one pairing.
  Either: The RFLORDER attribute (reflection order) of the response matrix and background spectra (if applicable) must match the RFLORDER of the corresponding spectrum.
  Either: The RGS instrument of the background spectra file does not match that of the pha spectra file, if applicable and adding background spectra, or the order of the response matrix does not match that of the spectra.
  The name of a response matrix file can be inferred from the name of the corresponding spectrum file only if the final 14 characters of the spectrum file name begin with “SRSPEC”.
  The first background spectra file name cannot be “.”; it must either be “@” or else be given explicitly.
  spectrum was not accumulated in lambda space.
  A HDUCLAS attribute (OGIP), HDUCLAS2 attribute (TOTAL or NET spectrum) or HDUCLAS3 attribute (COUNT) is not consistent with a previous file in the pha spectra file list.
Alignment of spectraerror 
  The pha files are not aligned in terms of wavelength. The task rgsproc will have to be called for each pha file with the appropriate attitude parameters (attastyle, attra, attdec, attapos).
Filename parameterwarning 
 No filename given for results files for either spectrum or response matrix
