Use TIMEPART() to get the time portion of your date time, and then format it with a custom format. 

 

proc format;
value business_hours_fmt
0 - < 28800, 75600 <- 86400 = "Outside"
28800 - 75600 = "Business Hours";
run;

/*Sample data*/
data want;
do time=3600 to 86400 by 3600;
i=time;
business_hours = put(time, business_hours_fmt.);
format time time.;
output;
end;
run;


data sample;
set have;
business_hours = put(datepart(datetime), business_hours_fmt.);
run;
