A significant test for Importance of Attribute

I’d like to report all attributes in order of Average Importance. Since the utilities of some attributes are very close one another, I want to conduct a test. Using the Average Importance and Standard Deviation provided in the Summary tab from ACBC/HB Report, how do I conduct a 95% statistical testing? Or, please let me know if there’s a data sheet showing the 95% CI points for an eye-ball testing. Thank you.
closed with the note: I found them all in my spreadsheet. Thank you.

Within the Analysis Manager of Lighthouse Studio, click "Utility Report" on the ribbon--it's within the Reporting family.  In the table of data, scroll down until you see the importances per attribute "Average Importances".   The software reports there in the 4th and 5th columns of that grid the lower and upper 95% confidence estimates.
