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.

  A required filename parameter has been left empty, indicating that a runtime default value should be supplied by the task, but an appropriate default cannot be inferred from the other parameter values given.
  The angular distribution file (parameter angdistset) could not be accessed.
  The SOURCES table has no entry with the specified source index number (parameter source).
  Either the event list (parameter evlist) contains no exposure map extensions at all, or none of the exposure maps enclose a non-zero area.
  This task is not designed to generate a response matrix consistent with a background spectrum (HDUCLAS2=BKG). If enabled, parameter spectrumset should refer to either a NET or a TOTAL spectrum.
  A spectrum file has been provided (parameter spectrumset) and its channel definitions are incommensurate with the channels defined by the event list (parameter evlist). The spectrum channels must align with some integral rebinning of the EVENTS table dispersion channels.
  The existing matrix to be modified has its rows (incident energy bins) in an unexpected order. This task requires that the incident energy bins be contiguous and in ascending order. Matrices not compliant with this requirement are not invalid according to the OGIP standard, but this task simply lacks the logic necessary to handle irregularities. In any case this task does not expect to be used to modify a response matrix generated by some other task, and so this error should never occur.
  There are no events to process.
corrective action: Automatically set witheffectiveareacorr parameter to YES, in case withrectification was set to YES.
  The event list provided (parameter evlist) contains an internal inconsistency: the channel definitions in the EVENTS table do not align with the channel definitions in the exposure map extensions.
corrective action: Each such exposure map is discarded, and no response will be associated with its node.
