Subject: Assigning Format
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
I have a Datset A (in library ProjA) having some user defined formats
with its format catalog
(FmtProjA) in a library called FmtProj and I have associated the format
of the dataset with the catalog in FmtProj.
Now, I create a new data set called B from A (data ProjA.B; Set
ProjA.A;run;) and I see that the formats in B do not get assigned
automatically from the formats in dataset A. I get messages like
"NOTE: Format PIDCS was not found or could not be loaded."
Because of this am forced to explicitly associate the FmtProjA to
dataset B using Proc datasets statement. Shouldnt SAS associate the
formats for derived datasets by default?
