Multi-select prompt - format labels on proc report

Hello,
I am hoping someone can help me. I am using a multi-select prompt within Enterprise Guide called "Display_Options" and have created the following proc report procedure (which is within a macro) that correctly outputs a table with the columns that are chosen in the prompt. However, the unformatted values of the prompt are displayed, and I would like to display the formatted values. I think I need to assign a format to the label which is in double quotes on the define statement, but I can't figure out how to do that.

Here's the proc report code:

proc report data=WORK.TEMP4 nowd;
column OrgName Provider_Name ProviderID
ConsistentItem1, (%do j=1 %to &Display_Options_count; &&Display_Options&j %endSmiley Wink ;
define OrgName / group 'Organization Name' format=$100. missing order=formatted;
define Provider_Name / group 'Provider Name' format=$101. missing order=formatted;
define ProviderID / group 'Provider ID' format=$50. missing order=formatted;
define ConsistentItem1 / across '' order=data missing;
%do j=1 %to %eval(&Display_Options_count);
define &&Display_Options&j / analysis SUM format=5.2 "???" missing;
%end;
run;
quit;


Here's the format for the column labels for the possible values for the prompt:

proc format;
value $Display MeanScore = 'Mean'
ItemN= 'Item n'
NumSIDs = 'Number of Respondents'
TopBox = 'Top Box';
run;

I would greatly appreciate any help on this.

Thanks,
KelseyB

%do j=1 %to %eval(&Display_Options_count); %let t = %sysfunc(putc(&&Display_Options&j,$Display.)); define &&Display_Options&j / analysis SUM format=5.2 "&t" missing; %end;

This might get you started.
