[idvusers] Data Extraction from NetCDF

Hi All
  I am trying to extract climate data from a *.nc file for simulating 
simulating flows in a watershed. The file contains predicted precipitaion data 
from 2000-2100 with Lat/Long. information the data. For my model simulation I 
need data in a table format that is precipitation data  for the daily time 
steps. I dont know how to extract this data from the netcdf file that I have. 
There is such a large collection of tools for NetCDF files that it took me two 
days to figure out which program to download. I have downloaded IDV now and 
going through its tutorial for getting it to work and let me extract data from 
the netcdf files. 
  Can anybody tell me straight away which tools to use in IDV to accomplish 
this task. Please bear in mind I am not a programmer, I am just a user.
  I tried to use ArcMap 9.2 by using its built in tool Make netcdf table view 
but as ArcMap saves it in the memory I was not able to get any data.
  I shall be thankful to you for a reply at the earliest.
