Dear ASReml Users,


Could you suggest what the possible solution for this error?

I presume it is memory related and one factor with 8000 levels only
because of
what I did next.

I shorted the data file and got it to work with about 402,000 lines out of
700,000 lines - about 5000 levels.
Treating the factor a covariate allows the full data to be read in but
that is
not a solution.

It would be nice to be able to override the default levels for a factor if

that is the limitation.

  jwe0019i u 1
total error count = 1

In ASREML 1.10 and earlier, there is a hard limit of 5000 in total for
labels for
levels of ALPHA factors. So, the only work around in that version is to
change the
labels to integer values.

In the developmental version, which should soon be available from VSN, the
number of
levels and the size of the labels can be set by the user.

Best wishes in the Name of Christ Jesus,
the Saviour of all who believe.
