Hi,

What i need to do is create format for all possible values of a variable using proc format

For example if i have country_code and country_name as fields, what i want to do is

Proc format;

values $cntry

                    "US" = ""UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

                    "IND" = "INDIA"

                    ....

                    ....

                    till all possible values

run;

How can i do that in macros? What i did was took all possible values in different macros using call symput and count also but dont know how to write out the values part.

Regards,

Saurabh
