How to change printout data-User Defined Formats

I am attempting to change the printed out data from originally  X for True and a Blank for no entry/false to changing that X to Yes and the blank to No.

I am also trying to  change printout values of 13-19 to being labeled  "teens" and 20s, 30s and so on for an age input value.

     Example- Age 15 would read out as "teen"

                     Age 92 = "nineties"

Any Advice would be great!

Re: How to change printout data-User Defined Formats

proc format;

value $YN

'X' = 'Yes'

' ','' ='No'  /* this line includes 2 single quotes with a space and just 2 single quotes depending on how your data as a "blank" is created both may be needed*/

;

Value agegroup

13-19='Teen'

20-29='20s'

30-39='30s'

<follow obvious pattern>

90-99='90s'

100-high='100+';

run;

Useage example:

proc print data=yourdatesetnamegoeshere;

var YesNo age;

format YesNo $YN. age agegroup. ;

run;

where YesNo is your variable with X/blank coding and Age is the variable with ages.
