> Description of problem: Hi guys,
> I've got a gridded file of ocean wave directions (degrees) that I'd like to 
> plot as vectors. I made a stab at it but nothing shows up on the display.
> Here's what I did:
> 1. chose the file.
> 2. field sector/formulas/make flow vector from u and v
> 3. for u and v, I chose Misc/define a formula
> 4. for u, I entered sin(d), the selected my data file for d.
> 5. for v, I entered cos(d), and again chose my data file for d.
> 6. then, when I create display, nothing shows. But it doesn't show any 
> errors, either.
> Any ideas?
> attached bundle and data file.

     I think your data is between +/-360 degree, you need to convert to radian. 
Also, in the vector display control, change the range to -1 to 1. See the
