    V6-CLUSTER-H022 ***Alert Note***

    TRIM= option creates incorrect values in OUTTREE= data set

    Product: STAT
    Component: CLUSTER
    Priority: ALERT

      PROC CLUSTER copies the values of the VAR variables to the
      OUTTREE= data set. If an observation in the DATA= data set
      contains missing values for any of the VAR statement variables,
      using the TRIM= option causes the nonmissing values to be copied
      incorrectly. No warnings or error messages are produced.

      The statistics produced by PROC CLUSTER are not affected.

      To circumvent the problem, delete observations with missing
      values for the VAR variables from the DATA= data set before
      running PROC CLUSTER.
