Oops. I feel stupid. Use:
"Proc format library=library fmtlib; run;"
I had already figured this out for somebody else last year.
Sorry for taking up net space.

Subject: What's in a Format library?
I need to access some permanent "user-defined" formats for some work I'm
doing. I know how to connect to the format catalog (libname library
"wherever";). But the Formats catalog has about 20 separately defined
formats that aren't clearly identified as to which format goes to what
piece of data (I didn't create this).
My question is: Is there a way of dumping out all of the info in there so
that I can see which particular formats I need? I tried using "Proc
Catalog; Contents;" but that only gave me the list of what formats were
stored there, not what they contained.
If it helps, I am using VMS/SAS Version 6.09 on a VMS/Alpha network.
Thanks in advance.
