Q:  

I am trying to run a SAS job on my American Community Survey file of 15 million cases. In my log file I am getting an error that reads "Insufficient space is available to run job." How do I remedy this?

A:  

Most UNIX and Linux machines have a default setting for SAS memory that is too small for that many cases. The user can alter the amount of space assigned.

The following command syntax changes the default to 3 Gigs. By including the memsize command in the sas command you will assign the stated size.

sas residence4.sas -memsize 3G
