I am trying to run a simple format command on SAS 9.4 64-bit:
format date date9. time time8. datetime datetime17.;
But I get this error:
ERROR 48-59: The format $DATE was not found or could not be loaded.
I get the same error re: time, but no error re: datetime.
This is a statement I've used many times before, and I see it on the internet as well. I've restarted SAS but have the same issue.
It also seems that if I change the names of the date and time variables, it works. That isn't a good solution here, though.

Ack! Nevermind, I was concatenating two different datasets and for some reason when I took the second dataset out, it worked.

Variable "date" is of type character.
