    SN-003657 ALERT NOTE

    WHERE clause in FSEDIT may find a match when it should not on OS/390

      Product: Base SAS
    Component: SAS data library I/O
     Priority: ALERT

      If your data set is defined to a SAS/SHARE server that has been started
      in Version 8 TSLEVEL M0 of SAS and you apply a WHERE clause in the
      FSEDIT procedure of SAS/FSP software that includes a variable by which
      your data is sorted, the WHERE clause may find matches when it should
      not.

      This is not a problem if the client is started in a SAS session whose
      release is later than Version 8 TSLEVEL M0.

      To circumvent the problem, specify the following system option in the
      SAS/SHARE server's session to disable the WHERE sorted-by optimization:

         options debug='yoew_opt=1';
         run;
