Un parisien sur SAS google group !! cool cool. Well. Had already tried what you suggested and it does not work. I get the same error message when I tried to read the new formats catalog. But I could get by recreating the format from the format table (created by cntlout) and a code something like: data _null_; set fmttable end = eof; if _n_ = 1 then call execute ("proc format lib = mylib;"); etc etc ... It worked. A++ Catherine.

Hi, From the online documentation, I can't see the benefit from the system options NOWORKTERM and NOWORKINIT. I am looking for system options that can preserve files (data sets) in the WORK library from one session to another session. I tried to write 'option noworkinit' in the file autoexec.sas, but SAS seemed to interpret it as an error. The documentation says that NOWORKINIT does not erase files from the WORK library at SAS invocation. When I started SAS, this is what showed up in the log NOTE: AUTOEXEC source line. 23 option noworkinit; ---------- 11 There is no error message to support the interpretation of the log. Is there any way to preserve data set from one session to the next even though they were created in the WORK library ? Regards, Rune
