Proc Distance......how to deal with nominal values coded using number???

I am trying to use Proc Distance. Some variables that I have are actually nominal values but it was coded with numbers....such as department code>>> (coded as 123987, 902344 etc.)

How could I tell the Proc Distance that the values are NOT numeric??? How could i tell Proc Distance that the numbers are actually nominal values???

Thank you for all your help
