Apparently the following options do not work with 'History' (a summary data set):
.Boxstyle = Schmatic
I desperately need both options to work with my summary data.

If your data contains values and counts of values this is more likely to be possible. Or if you have the mean, limits of the IQR and the limits for the whiskers it may be possible with annotate data sets. What kind of summarized data do you actually have? What do the 5 value represent? And what should the final plots look like?

The Box Plot should look like the following:
See "Just Enough SAS", "A Quick-Start Guide to SAS for Engineers", by Robert A. Rutledge,
Copyright 2009, SAS Institute, Inc. Figure 5.2, Page nbr 117.
This is a notched box plot. The only difference would be I need the Schematic box plot instead of the Skeletal (shown in Figure 5.2).

I am using the following procedure:
The only difference is I need a Schematic type and I need it to be noched so I can perform a visual comparison of the medians.

The notched part works fine, the boxstyle option does not, but I can't visually see the difference from the example.
So perhaps post your code that isn't working, IN A NEW THREAD. Preferably linked back to this one.

I have learned that, with the standard 'History=' summary, one can't create a 'Schematic' style box plot because the Schematic style needs outlier data (not in the summary).
However with a 'BOX= input data (instead of 'History= input data') you can get both notched
and schematic. The BOX= data set must contain more data than the simpler
HISTORY= data set, though. It is not just a matter of reshaping from HISTORY=
to BOX=. If you only have the summary data that is found in a HISTORY= data set
then there is nothing you can do. You must have the values of the low and high
whiskers. These are the smallest and largest values in the data set that fall
within the fences. In addition you must have all the individual data points that
fall beyond the whiskers. These are the additional components of a schematic
box plot, and these are not typical summary statistics.
I think I am all set for now. Thank you for quick and thorough response.
