Problem Note 18706: Query might cause syntax errors after project migration in SAS®
After migrating a project from SAS Enterprise Guide 2.x or 3.x to 4.1,
queries might cause syntax errors. This particular problem will most
likely occur when the query contains computed columns that use
aggregation functions such as AVG, SUM, etc. The errors occur because
the function is not parsed correctly. This results in misplaced quotes
and consequently generates syntax errors.
To circumvent the problem, edit the computed column and remove the
invalid quotes from the expression.
