You can do it automatically with PROC FORMAT too, you know.
I recommend that you build your own format with a data step and
the CNTLIN= option. If you can define a rule or formula to break
your data into those '500' bands, then you can perform that in
a data step to build your format.
I cannot really give you much more guidance, since you haven't
explained anything about the 'bands' you want, or the distribution
of the data to be banded. If you need more help, please write to
the list (not to me personally) andyour problem more fully.
