    Defining formats/informats with the same name in multiple projects

    Users that set up format catalogs in different studies or sources may create a situation where a format name is defined in two different projects but that have different values and labels. SAS holds in memory the first one used in an AF object and an error may occur in Data Entry when switching from one of these projects to another. The format or informat that was defined first will not be cleared and will be used in the second project. It can only be unloaded by ending the SAS AF Session.

    However this problem has been addressed in ClinPlus Data Management version 3.10. The format path is cleared when entering and exiting Data Entry. To take advantage of this solution SAS 8.2 users running on Windows must install SAS Hot Fix 82BA55.

    When upgrading to ClinPlus Data Management version 3.10, the install instructions and the executable file for this SAS hot fix are provided. More information regarding this SAS hot fix can be found at the following location:
