    SN-009434 ***Alert Note***

    DWPROB probability values may be incorrect when RESTRICT or BOUNDS
    statements are used

    Product: SAS/ETS
    Component: Multiple procedures
    Priority: ALERT

      P-values computed by the DWPROB option in the AUTOREG and MODEL
      procedures are incorrect if a RESTRICT statement is used to impose an
      equality restriction on at least one of the model parameters.

      In PROC MODEL, if the DWPROB option is specified, and either a RESTRICT
      or BOUNDS statement with an inequality operator is also used, then the
      p-values computed by the DWPROB option are incorrect if the boundary
      restriction is "active." Boundary constraints expressed with either a
      RESTRICT or BOUNDS statement are active only if a parameter estimate is
      fixed at one of the boundary points. When a boundary constraint is
      active, a row appears at the bottom of the Parameter Estimates table
      with a parameter name of the form, "Bound n" or "Restrict n".

      No circumvention is available for this problem. In both the AUTOREG and
      MODEL procedures, p-values computed by the DWPROB option should be set
      to missing when the model has an active restriction or constraint.
