Hi @Pandu,

 

I mostly use the FMTLIB option of PROC FORMAT for this purpose.

 

The syntax is:

proc format lib=your_libref fmtlib;
run;

Or, if the name of the catalog is not FORMATS:

proc format lib=your_libref.your_catalog fmtlib;
run;

 

If you don't want to see the format definitions, but just the format names, types, etc., the CATALOG procedure is a better option:

proc catalog c=your_libref.your_catalog;
contents;
quit;

Enterprise Guide 8.x has a viewer for catalogs names "Catalog and format explorer".

CNTLOUT on PROC FORMAT to pipe that information to a data set.
