    SN-008629 ***Alert Note***

    PROC FAMILY may incorrectly report TDT Chi-square results when the SDT
    and COMBINE options are also specified

    Product: SAS/Genetics
    Component: FAMILY procedure
    Priority: ALERT

      If the TDT, SDT, and COMBINE options are specified on the PROC FAMILY
      statement, the TDT Chi-Sq results, depending on the dataset, may be
      incorrect. You can determine if you have encountered this problem by
      running PROC FAMILY twice, once with the TDT, SDT, and COMBINE options
      and the second time with just the TDT option. The TDT Chi-square for
      the two runs should match. If they do not, the TDT Chi-sq results
      reported in the run without the COMBINE option is the correct one.
