Subject: Re: How to get county's names from the FIPs code
There is no function that will give u names of all counties in the U.S.
but u can create formats and do look-ups that will produce the name based
on a number. U also might want to read up on the zipfips, zipname
zipnamel and zipstate functions (SAS Lang. Guide PP.613-616.)
