I'm trying to obtain 95% confidence intervals and standard errors from
the following quantity (Y):

Y= (A x B)/K

Where, A is the mean of a continuous variable; B is an odds ratio; and K
is a constant. A and B are calculated from published reports, and I can
only obtain their standard error (SE) from the reported 95% confidence
interval. Therefore, I have A and SE(A), B and SE(B), and K.

I've checked the "simulate" command, but I'm not savvy enough to write a
do file to accomplish this task. Any help or suggestion would be
appreciated.
