Is there a way to use a format a title similarly to how data can be formatted?

The closest thing in syntax I can think of that does not work is.

title="%Put(&max_level_name sLev.)  only";

There are options to control the look of the text in a title statement and you can also put BY variables and their values in titles.

Rewording a little.

In SAS 9.2 I’m trying to make a title statement of

Title = “only 1”;

To display

Only Baccalaureate

Using a structure like

value dLvl

1='Baccalaureate';

data_null__

proc format;
  
value dLvl 1='Baccalaureate';
  
run;
title "Only %sysfunc(putn(1,dlvl))";
proc print data=sashelp.class;
   run;

Data null,

Thanks for helping me out. I was querying the value or storing the value without needing to, this will help with efficiency.

Alternatively.

data class;
   set sashelp.class;
   retain dlvl 1;
proc format;
  
value dLvl 1='Baccalaureate';
  
run;
options byline=0;
title "Only #byval1";
proc print data=class;
   by dlvl;
   format dlvl dlvl.;
  
run;
options byline=1;
