can't look up format/informat when using sgplot

can you call format/informat tables from a proc sgplot procedure?

The below code (calling the format table) works perfectly in a datastep but I get the following error when running it in a proc sgplot procedure.

"Format/Informat nolevels. could not be located."

proc sgplot data=Egidwh_oneway4 ( where=(input(put(factor,nolevels.),4.) <= 10 and factor = "cover"));

   title "cover";

   vbar level / response=exposure;

   vline level / response=all_LR y2axis;

run;

Hello,

My gut feeling is that you should be able to filter on formats within SGPLOT, because you can plot formats in SGPLOT. Can you please confirm if you have exposure data and all_LR data for that where clause?

It would also be helpful to have access to the egidwh_oneway4 dataset.

In any event, I'm sure that you worked out that you can perform the where clause with a datastep, and then use SGPLOT on the transformed dataset.

Thanks.

In which library does your format NOLEVELS exist? If it resides in a permanent library then likely the library is not in the current FMTSEARCH path. Or if the format is being created in the work library then it does not persist from SAS session to session and the code needs to be rerun.
