Subject: proc format: replacing old format with itself...
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
I tried to add a new line to a format by overwriting the old format
with it's own values:
I have a Format Catalog (sas7bcat) holding format SCHTM residing in
library fmtlib. Now I try
proc format library = fmtlib;
value SCHTM . = "NA" <---- This is a new entry to the
other = [SCHTM10.];
While there the log gives no warning (see details)
NOTE: Format SCHTMV is already on the library.
NOTE: Format SCHTMV has been written to U40384.FORMATS
The FORMAT Catalog can't be used after this operation. Either there is
a warning that the formats are not defined or SAS is quitting in an
instance without further warning.
How can I modify a format??
Thank's for any help.
