I have calculated standard deviation of mean values via Gaussian error propagation because I used a rather complex formula. After this i wanted to compare means (with LSD or HSD). I was searching through the net and all I could find was the input of raw data (e.g. 4.5g,4.7g, and 5.1 g for sample A and 8.5g, 9.1g, and 10.8g for sample B).
How can I import the data into SAS if I have the mean value and the standard deviation (e.g. 4.8g (±0,3) for sample A and 9,5g(±1,2) for sample B?
All best regards

Thanks for your reply! If I understand you correctly you are suggesting to calculate my post hoc testing manually. I was also considering this but I thought importing data in the questioned format must be such a basic function...

The PROCs that compute the LSD (like ANOVA and GLM) expect to get raw data. It's not the importing of the summary data that is the issue, it is the computation of the subsequent statistics.
