I have a code in which I import data from a file and then I create a format using PROC FORMAT. But then every time I want to do some sort of output of the data I need to type [pre]FORMAT Var1 Var1. Var2 Var2. ...[/pre]
[pre]OPTIONS FMTSEARCH= (FORMATS) ;
PROC PRINT data=TEMP;
format Region Region. Risk Risk. Economic_Health Economic_Health.;
Is there any way to apply this format "permanently" so to speak?
