You can import the excel file and write it out to a sas dataset that you can call on, you can write the 30 names into a proc format. I'm sure there are other options but without more details it's hard to help.

Import the list of vendors into SAS.
Create a proper cntlin file for proc format that assigns the value 1 to all vendors, and attach a line for "other" that assigns 0,
Aplly that format in a data step and keep only the records where the formatted value is 1.
If you're not yet firm with all these procedures/steps, copy/paste the list into the EG code window and reformat it manually so that it can be used in an "in" condition.
