st: "Label define" syntax for "all other values"

Subject   st: "Label define" syntax for "all other values"
Date   Thu, 23 Sep 2010 23:46:54 -0700 (PDT)

Dear list members,
Suppose that variable rr_job takes the values 1,2,3,...,999. Can I construct a format for this variable that specifies some values and lumps the rest into a catchall category? That is, can I write

label define rr_jobf 1 "Driver" 2 "Conductor" 3 "Brakeman" 4 "Fireman" <other> "All other jobs"

where <other> represents the syntax I don't know but means any value not elsewhere specified.

Thanks!
