Proc Format to Data-set Containing Formats

Hi,

 

Below is a short program having some one-to-one and many-to-one formats.  I want a dataset for the same and want to use that dataset as formats.  Also I have attached a txt file containing all values and required labels (in which you can change, if required "low" to 0 and "high" to 100 for age formats):

proc format library=myfmts;
	value $gender 'M'='Male' 'F'='Female' ' '='Not entered' other='Miscoded';
	value age low-29='Less than 30' 30-50='30 to 50' 51-high='51+';
	value $likert '1'='Strongly disagree' '2'='Disagree' '3'='No opinion' 
		'4'='Agree' '5'='Strongly agree';
        value $likert_new '1'-'3' = 'Agree' '4','5' = 'Disagree';
run;

Please give me required sas codes.

Regards,
