Hi Jan, This netCDF file could perhaps do a better job of abiding by CF Conventions, either point or time series: http://cfconventions.org/cf-conventions/v1.6.0/cf-conventions.html#_point_data http://cfconventions.org/cf-conventions/v1.6.0/cf-conventions.html#time-series-data At any rate, the specific problem for the station name is the netCDF dimensions it is associated with which are: (station=33, strlen=50). If you have control over the provenance of this file, consider creating a second station name variable that would have the same dimension as the 'time' or 'units' variables (obs). This approach will yield a better result for what you wish to accomplish with the CSV output. You could also argue the IDV should be a little smarter for handling these kinds of data (assuming the data properly follow CF conventions) and understand these dimensionality considerations when transforming data to CSV, for example. But in the end, the IDV is not always the best data conversion tool and was not really designed for that objective even though it has some data transformation capability.
