I'm sorry, but without more information on your underlying problem and
the data you collected, there is no way to determine what the "best"
statistical procedure might be. Do you really have 5 groups of means?
What happened to the individual data that made up those means, and why
don't you want to look at them? How many means are in each of the
What do these means represent? What distributional characteristics
are you assuming?
At this point, my best advice is to go talk to a statistician and
showing him|her the data - then ask for advice. There may be a SAS
procedure which will do what you are advised to try.
