    SN-005780 ***Alert Note***

    The DDFM=SATTERTHWAITE option can cause incorrect results when used in
    the presence of both a RANDOM and a REPEATED statement

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

      The DDFM=SATTERTHWAITE option may return incorrect results if you have
      both a RANDOM and a REPEATED statement in your PROC MIXED step, and the
      number of levels of the repeated effect is larger than the sum of the
      number of columns in the X and Z design matrices. PROC MIXED may also
      issue a read-access violation or shut down your SAS session in this

      The only results that may be inaccurate are the Satterthwaite degrees
      of freedom. All other results are correct.

      There is no circumvention for this problem.
