if (for obvious reasons since you are rsubmitting code) you can not give us
ready-to-run code then at least show us the error messages you get.

Like Robert said: it is impossible to help you without knowing anything,
but your machines and how many processors they have. We don't know, where
the problem is located, if we don't know which errors you get!
One idea: you say, you test macros in your local environment? When you
call them in remote programs, you get errors? Maybe something that the
macro %xyz is unknown? That's the case if they are local to your PC and
you submit and execute code on a remote machine!
By the way: do we talk of parallel-processing, or remote-processing?

I took the advanced exam this April because I wanted a relatively
systematic way of assessing my knowledge of SAS in a short time span.
For that purpose, it was worth it.
Since I learn SAS by doing new tasks, or re-doing old tasks in a new
way, I assume my knowledge of SAS is uneven, even though I am regarded
as productive, and frequently creative in using SAS to solve our group's

I use both SAS and R; I"ve used SAS for 10 or 15 years, R for about 6
months - 1 year.
Each has strengths and weaknesses; I'd not like to give up either.
Strengths of SAS (esp. compared to R)
Tech support - I have SAS tech support's phone number and our license
number memorized. They're great.
SAS-L - There's also an R-help list, and it's also great, but the mood
is different; r-help is less welcoming to newbie questions, silly
questions, badly worded questions, not directly on topic questions, and

Well then, maybe the rest of us might have a chance then :)
Given that I have not used SAS regularly in months, I would be hurting.
Hopefully, I would not be tossed immediately either.

I interviewed at a company that gave a test where I had a half hour to
produce a very simple report using PROC REPORT. I was provided all the
manuals I wanted, but because I had used PROC REPORT before, I wanted none
of them. I finished in five minutes, and most people on SAS-L would be
able to beat that time.

Test preparation is akin to following a simple algorithm:
1. Evaluate the test and discover if it is worth taking.
2. If #1 evaluates false then go to exit.
3. Determine if your *test* knowledge of SAS is insufficient.
4. If #3 evaluates true, do the test preparation.
5. Pay the money.
6. Take the test.
From your standpoint, the step of paramount importance is step #1. That is
where you mainly failed. From SAS' standpoint, only one step matters: #5.
This is the only reason the test was created in the first place.
