I'm reading data from an xl file and then run it through the data step below in preparation for the proc format that follows it. Works the way it should.
The data that I apply this format to has values that are not in the start list. I'd like to group these into a category called 'Other'. I can add a label = 'Other' but I don't know how to 'wildcard' the start value. If you can help, please do. Thanks.

A Google advanced search of the SAS support http://support.sas.com/ website yielded several matches, some SAS-hosted documentation and some technical papers on the topic. Here's the search argument - the site: parameter limits the search:

Another discovery technique would be to create a simple format with PROC FORMAT and VALUE, coding an OTHER= , and then run PROC FORMAT with CNTLOUT= and use PROC PRINT to see the SAS-generated results.
You will want to explore using the HLO='O' variable value, leaving START as blank, and assigning some desired LABEL variable value -- this would be an extra observation.
