Problem reading in user defined format in 9.3 64 bit

I just got my system upgrade from 9.2 32 bit to 9.3 64 bit. And I need to make use of some of my user defined formats on 9.2 32 bit but could not. I even tried using Proc migrate but not getting an headway.

I will appreciate if someone can provide a guide.

Thanks.

Have you checked if your formats actually got migrated and if they (the catalog) are stored in the correct folder?

Have you checked if the folder containing the formats is also part of the format search path?

Have you re-started your session after migrating stuff and before testing?

did you create an autoexec program in 9.2 to define the formats?
