I want to assign different format according to the value of the var
suppose if the value of variable is a,b,c then all the numeric variable show percent format
other show normal number format.

you can use call define statement in proc report
data have; input id $ val; datalines; a .1 b .5 c .7 d 5 ; proc report nowd data=have; col id val; compute val; if id in('a','b', 'c') then do; call define(_col_,'format','percent10.2'); end; endcomp; run;

You can do this in a PROC REPORT COMPUTE block. There have been many previous postings on this topic. Here's an example of the COMPUTE block if you wanted to change the format for the whole row:
compute var_b; if var_a in ('a', 'b', 'c') then do; call define(_row_,'format','percent9.2'); end; else if var_a in ('d','e') then do; call define(_row_,'format','comma6.'); end; endcomp;
If you only wanted selected columns/variables to be formatted, then the CALL DEFINE would change to:
Anything other than _col_ or _row_ must be quoted as the first argument in the CALL DEFINE.
Hope this helps,
