Although part of the SAS Format facility for well over two decades, PICTURE Formats are often not well understood, and consequently tend to be underutilized by even experienced SAS users. Yet, they provide a wealth of tools to effectively portray the values of numeric variables and often avoid the need for either tedious data step coding or to create new variables in your data sets. This tutorial describes how PICTURE Formats “work,” how to write them in PROC FORMAT statements and how to apply them in both Data and Procedure Steps. By mastering the concepts and techniques shown in this paper you will be able to apply the power of PICTURE formats in your SAS programs
and in so doing often complete your data management, reporting and analysis tasks faster and easier than resorting to other potentially more tedious and time-intensive methods in the SAS System.

This paper gives a clear idea about functionality of picture format.
