Scott, I think the O/P wanted to be able to switch off formats dynamically when viewing the data in the Viewtable application, wishing it were possible. However, your reply does suggest a workaround which would be to create a view of the data using FORMAT _ALL_ if that works. A few simple lines of code: then in Viewtable the user could switch from the dataset to the view and back again.

I think this is as close to what I wanted as is possible to get. The feature I´m missing is being able to switch between viewing variables in viewtables with and without formats by clicking a button. At present you can only switch labels on an off in this way.
So I will simply copy the viewtable in question, choose edit mode in the copied table, double click on the variable in question and change the format to something like best.
Thanks all who replied!
