Just getting started-Need help formatting

I just imported my data set into SAS for the first time.  I have a gender variable with a simple M or F entry.  Some of my entries however are m and f and I simply want to change them to M and F.

 

I imagine this is probably ridiculously simple, but even after googling it I seem to be having a problem with my syntax.

 

Would anyone have a second to help me out.

 

Thanks in advance.

UPCASE() function

 

data class;
set sashelp.class;
sex = lowcase(sex);
sex_Upper = upcase(sex);
run;
