    SN-004841 ***Alert Note***

    PROC CALIS produces incorrect results if an INWGT= data set is specified
    when METHOD=GLS

    Product: SAS/STAT
    Component: CALIS procedure
    Priority: ALERT

      If you run PROC CALIS using METHOD=GLS and specify an INWGT= data set,
      the results will be incorrect. The results are not noticeably incorrect
      and there is no circumvention for this problem.

      Note that the results are correct with METHOD=GLS if you do NOT specify
      an INWGT= data set. The results are also correct if you specify an
      INWGT= data set that is exactly equal to the default weight matrix (the
      sample covariance or correlation matrix).
