Using EG 4.2 and finding differences from EG 4.1

Problem:
Discovered that I get an error message when I use the permanent library in Proc Format in EG 4.2 that I did not get with EG 4.1. See below:

312 PROC FORMAT Library=LIBRARY5;
ERROR: File LIBRARY5.FORMATS.CATALOG was created for a different operating system.

SOLUTION:
Since I was using the same folder or destinations for two separate permanent libraries in EG 4.1,
LIBNAME PERMNENT 'F:\DAA\SAS Programs\LAA1\Fen_LAA1_2008_2009';
NOTE: Libname PERMNENT refers to the same physical library as
LIB_EG42.
NOTE: Libref PERMNENT was successfully assigned as follows:
Engine: V9
Physical Name: F:\DAA\SAS Programs\LAA1\Fen_LAA1_2008_2009
LIBNAME lib_EG42 'F:\DAA\SAS Programs\LAA1\Fen_LAA1_2008_2009\cheng'; RUN;
NOTE: Libref LIB_EG42 was successfully assigned as follows:
Engine: V9
Physical Name: F:\DAA\SAS Programs\LAA1\Fen_LAA1_2008_2009\cheng

In EG 4.2, I used two different locations or destinations for defining the permanent libraries and I have eliminated the error messages. See below:
13 PROC FORMAT library=lib_EG42;
314 VALUE $GRADE_SPAN '3'='Grades 3-4 '
315 '5'='Grades 5-6 '
316 '7'='Grades 7-8 '
317 '9'='Grades 9-11';
NOTE: Format $GRADE_SPAN is already on the library.
NOTE: Format $GRADE_SPAN has been written to LIB_EG42.FORMATS.

Re: Using EG 4.2 and finding differences from EG 4.1

Hi,

The error you experienced might be due to a change in SAS 9.2 (which EG connects to) from SAS 9.1. In this case, EG is just the messenger Smiley Happy
