I realize this is pretty basic, but I can't figure out how to do it and could use some help.
I'm running a path model using a complex survey data using 90 repweights. I have continuous and some categorical variables. I cant figure out how to get the sd, skewness and kurtosis for the variables. All I can find is the means. Can someone advise me how to get these. I would just run them in spss or something but because of all the weights, the sample will be inconsistent.

You can do a TYPE=BASIC with the WEIGHT variable. Here you will obtain weighted sample statistics. Mplus does not give skewness and kurtosis.
