Introduction:
I upgraded to SAS v9. If I run the same processor/code inside of Endevor on the previous release it works. Under SAS v9 I get this error message and the process fails.

 1 PROC FORMAT LIB=FMTT; ERROR: Write access to member FMTT.FORMATS.CATALOG is denied

The same process/code does not work outside of Endevor as the user does not have authority.
Question:
Am I doing something wrong? 
Environment:
Endevor base (all releases)
Answer:
You may not be doing anything wrong. Ensure you have the SAS option FILEAUTHDEFER  set. If you do and have the "Write access" error check with the SAS vendor they have a ZAP to correct this issue.
