Implementing User-Defined Formats

Hi all,

I have been struggling to find out much information on making user defined formats available to use in VA. So far all I have found which appears to be relevant are these links:

40103 - Frequently asked questions about making user-defined formats available in a SAS® Business In...

47100 - Support for user-defined formats in SAS® Visual Analytics Explorer, SAS® Visual Analytics De...

The VA user guide and the  SAS Intelligence Platform: Data Administration Guide both seem to be not very helpful; after having my formats.sas7bcat file placed in the suggested SAS-config-dir/Lev1/SASApp/SASEnvironment/SASFormats I have not been able to find any documentation telling me how to use them, neither does it seem straightforward. I don't think it can be done through VA, and I have access to but am not familiar with the SAS Management Console.

If anybody could help me out it would be greatly appreciated

Thanks,

Steven

Problem has been solved, it was due to the format being created in 32bit and the server running 64 bit.
