It is easier if you show your code, but this looks simple enough. Try playing with this:

proc format; value $sex 'M', 'm' = 'Male' 'F', 'f' = 'Female' other = [$1.] ; run;

proc freq data=YOUR_DATA; table sex; format sex $sex.; run;

For more help and a shameless plug, check out my SAS Press book; The Power of Proc Format,
