Subject: Two format libraries?
I am a fairly new user, so forgive the question if it is an obvious one...
I am merging two datasets that were created with the formats permanently
associated (i.e. using attrib statements). Therefore, I cannot do much of
anything with either one without pointing to the formats catalog for each
(with a library libname). Obviously, however, I can only name one libname
library. What I have been doing up to this point is pointing to the
formats catalog for one of them with libname library, and simply adding an
%include statement that runs the formats program for the other dataset.
Is there a better way to handle this? Thanks.
