i have a data set of means, stds, min and max. I want to explore the data utilizing all the information i have...ie incorporating the standard deviation along with the means. How do i do that. I don't have the raw data for each mean or std.

What kind of research questions are you trying to answer.
You don't mention whether you have the n (count of subjects) any of those stats are based on. That may make things very hard much with.

It is about data simulation. Better post it at IML forum. use rand() you can get normal distribution with a special mean and std. once the data are out the range min-max , throw it out the window. data have; do i=1 to 10000; x=rand('nomal',mean,std); if min<=x<=max then output; end; run;
