That's easy. Subtract the dataset's mean value from each element. Then divide each element by the dataset's standard deviation. My question to you is, why would you want to do such a thing?

Normally distributed:

out = randn(1000,1);

This will generate some random numbers with zero mean and 1 variance.But,i want to get input from a dataset which has zero mean and 1 variance.So for that i want to make my dataset to that condition

randn() will generate any random values with standard normal distributed i right? how to generate random values fr0m the dataset using randn command
