It depends on the construct(s) used in your IF / THEN. It may be that PROC FORMAT along with a PUT function in your assignment statement might work for some, if not all, of your data-values referenced in the expression(s) you have coded.

Other options are SELECT/WHEN/OTHERWISE/END and possibly a hash table approach may work for your SAS application program.

Suggest checking the SAS support http://support.sas.com/ website - also you may want to reply to your post and PASTE some examples of the different / unique coding expressions used.
