Is there any function in SAS like NORMSDIST (excel)?

Hi People,

I am needing urgent a help with a especific function that i use in excel,

I need do the same as the NORMSDIST (Returns the standard normal cumulative distribution function. The distribution has a mean of 0 (zero) and

a standard deviation of one).

In other words... I need to do the same as below (

With 4 parameters

HAVE1|    HAVE2:  HAVE3  HAVE4: | WANT

20.951|     2,48%     2,1%    1,65       | 95,1%  --->>> (IF(HAVE2>HAVE3,NORMSDIST(HAVE4),1-NORMSDIST(HAVE4))

Thanks in Advance.

I'm somewhat Excel challenged but I think you may be looking for the SAS CDF function.

The CDF function computes the left cumulative distribution function from various continuous and discrete probability distributions. You specifiy the distribution and parameters.

result = CDF('NORMAL',x);

optional parameters allow specifying mean and standard deviation as wanted.
