Hi Janine.


I made two changes and successfully imported and listed your data:

GEMPAK-SFCFIL>l
SFOUTF   = 20020612.sfc
SFPRMF   = P01M/0.0-300.0-0.01
STNFIL   = stationCD.fil
SHIPFL   = NO
TIMSTN   = 24/5
SFFSRC   = metr
GEMPAK-SFCFIL>r

SFCFIL PARAMETERS:

New surface file:      20020612.sfc
Parameter file:        P01M/0.0-300.0-0.01
Station file:
Number of stations in STNFIL:       1
Number of additional stations:      5
Total number of stations:           6
Total number of times:             24

This file will be a standard surface file.

Subject: Help with error: [SFEDIT 2] Station cannot be added to the file

Hi all,

I am stumped.  I have a very simple (one station) test case that I can't get
to run.  I run sfcfil and then sfedit, and get the above error.

My station file, stationCD.fil, contains a single line:

>16980603 999999 TEST                             -- US  3210  -9170    24

My data file, 20020612.txt, contains 24 hourly values:

>PARM = P01M
>
>STN      YYMMDD/HHMM    P01M
>16980603 020612/0000    0.00
>16980603 020612/0100    0.00
>16980603 020612/0200    0.00
>16980603 020612/0300    0.00
>.
>.
>.
>16980603 020612/2300    0.00

I run sfcfil with the following options:
> SFOUTF   = 20020612.sfc
> SFPRMF   = P01M
> STNFIL   = stationCD.fil
>SHIPFL   = no
>TIMSTN   = 24/0
>SFFSRC   = 20020612.txt

and get

Then I run sfedit and get:

What am  I missing?????
