Did you know that beginning with SAS 9.2, CUMIPMT, CUMPRINC, IPMT, PMT, and PPMT functions support was moved from SAS ETS to SAS BASE. However, on SAS 9.2 or higher system where ETS is not install may run into error such as:
ERROR 68-185: The function XXYYYZZZ is unknown or cannot be accessed.
Where XXYYZZ is the name of any one of the functions described above.
To circumvent, use FINANCE function. An example would be:
CP = Finance(‘CUMPRINC’,.01/17, 360, 150000, 12, 24, 0);
Did you know that using platform cluster name (lsf-cluster in SAS grid lsf.cluster) that exceeds length of 20 characters may end up in error when you attempt to load the configuration into the Platform RTM monitoring tool? The error you may see
ERROR: Failed to load configuration. Please check cluster settings, login password and connectivity between RTM and cluster master host. Refer to Admin Guide for more information.
Workaround: Use shorter cluster name for the lsf. cluster<cluster name> file.
