unless you have reset fmtsearch it searching the
work and libref=library
1 %Put fmtsearch<%sysfunc(getoption(fmtsearch))>;
iirc, this error comes from having a data set with a variable
that has the named format associated with it
and there is no such format in any of the libref
named in the fmtsearch list.
proc options define value option = fmtsearch;
