I have a custom product attribute of code format for all Downloadable Products.

If a customer purchases a Downloadable Product, I want them to be able to see that attribute when they Download the product in the "My Downloadable Products" section, in app/.../template/downloadable/customer/products/list.phtml

Is there a way I can print that attribute in that template file, within the foreach $_items as $_item loop?

I have tried $_item->getData('format'); and $_item->getPurchased->getData('format'); and neither are working. I assume the problem is because only certain attributes are being loaded in this view at present but I am not sure how to load them.

Many thanks for any help in advance.

Check if the attribute is used in product listing:

Catalog > Attributes > Manage Attributes > Select your format Attribute

Used in Product Listing set to "Yes".

You should be able to retrief the attribute value with $_item->getData('format'); or $_item->getFormat(); then.
