Problem in deleting the user defined prompt

I have created a User Defined prompt which i am using in my display of reports.

For example:-

proc format library=FMTLIB;
value com8fmt .=' 0.00' other=[comma8.2];
run;
Now I dont want to use this format.
So how should i delete a user defined prompt permantently?

Hi Sunil,

you just double click on the Formats catalog from inside your library. Select the customized format you want to delete ''com8fmt" then press delete from your keyboard. then it will be deleted premantently.

Use the proc catalog

proc catalog cat=FMTLIB.FORMATS;
delete com8fmt.format;
quit;
