Better still is the below which will cope with separating commas with no spaces.

%macro fmtpath;

%local i cat cats catlist;

%let cats=%sysfunc(compress(%sysfunc(getoption(fmtsearch)),%(%))); %let cats=%sysfunc(translate(%quote(&cats),%str( ),%str(,)));

%do i=1 %to %words(&cats); %let cat=%qscan(&cats,&i,%str( )); %if not %index(&cat,.) %then %let cat=&cat..FORMATS; %let catlist=&catlist &cat; %end;

%if not %index(&catlist,LIBRARY.FORMATS) %then %let catlist=LIBRARY.FORMATS &catlist; %if not %index(&catlist,WORK.FORMATS) %then %let catlist=WORK.FORMATS &catlist;

&catlist %mend;
