Format could not be loaded

Hi,

I was trying to add a new variable to my dataset and wanted it to be formatted using the format i define. But I always get this error "The format $ was not found or could not be loaded."

Can someone help me please.

Here's a sample of my code:

proc format library=fmt.coll;
value $brcode '036' = 'Manila'
...
OTHER = 'Other'
;

value buc 0 = 'buc0'
...
120 - High = 'buc12'
;
run;


Here' s how I use my format.

data mydata.new;
set temp;
format brname $brcode.;
bkt = put(numdays,buc.);
run;


I only encounter the error with this line "format brname $brcode.;"
Is there any other way to do it?

I also tried brcode = put(brname,$brcode.); but still the same problem
"The format $brcode was not found or could not be loaded."

Thank you guys, hoping for your help and suggestions.
