Missing Numeric value is considered the smallest value in SAS. But when using with PROC Format, the LOW keyword doesn't recognize missing value(period) as lowest value? Instead it goes to Other. What could be the reason for thiss
Proc format ;
value fmt low - <100='T1'
proc print data=s1;
format num fmt.;

Because that is what the keyword LOW means in the PROC FORMAT.
If you want to make a range that includes missing values then use the missing values in the range.
proc format ;
value x ._ = 'Lowest missing' .='Normal missing' .a-.z='Special missing' low-high='Regular number';
