[IDV #ZTD-112359]: loading focal mechanism data



Matthew & John,

I had the best luck by reformatting the first column, time field. Here is an
example

1/31/1977 14:26:15,40.04,70.852,-20,6,296,35,99,104,,11/6/2005 2:11:53

I removed the quotes around the time and -- this is important -- replaced the
tab with a space.

In the Text Point Metadata Gui, I then used the time format of 

MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss

Best,

Unidata IDV Support
