You are almost there. Look at the WEIGHT statement in PROC FREQ. In particular, the section on "imputting frequency counts" for your situation. The same approach can be used with PROC RANK.

With that many ties, the rank tests don't have as much power as they do for continuous data.

>rank test for frequency

Do you mean Wilcoxon-rank-sum test?
then should use proc n1parm ?
