Re: ERROR: The format NLNUM was not found or could not be loaded.

You could easily cause this problem.  For example, your code could contain:

newvar = put(oldvar, nlnum.);

So find out where in your program you are referring to the nlnum format.

A more complex scenario would involve this combination:

(1) You have an existing character format named $nlnum

(2)  You try to print a numeric variable using this character format

But the starting point is still to examine your code and find out where NLNUM appears.

Good luck.
