There is a trick you can use, but it requires that you
restructure your data before feeding it into PROC GPLOT
One of the options on the SYMBOL statement is the
So you can set up the data so that in the high, low and close
positions, the data values will be the +1 sd, -1 sd and mean.
This is a sketchy description, and I can give you more details
if you need them.

Subject: Standard deviation plot with groups
I would like to create a standard deviation plot showing the mean with
lines showing +/- the standard deviation for groups arranged by day. I
want these all on the same chart. I have the variables group, day and
temperature. Is there any way to do this without rearranging the data?
the past I have created a new variable "group/day" so that I could plot
these side by side, but it is cumbersome.
I have tried to create with proc gplot, but I cannot figure out how to
have two grouping variables. I could use bar charts with proc gchart to
convey this information, which is pretty straightforward, but I don't
the bar charts very much for displaying information about means.
Thanks in advance.
