assigning values to codes for sorting

Hi,

How do we assign an order to set of values in FORMAT so I can use them for sorting?

For example, let's say there are five values for "visit code" format - "Screening", "Day1", "Day5", "W6" and "EXIT". Can I assign a sorting order to these values so that they will always be sorted in this order when I apply PROC SORT to a dataset?

Thank you.
