I don't think so. If you can plot the data with SFCMG, then you should be able to plot the data with SFCPLOT. This smells like a bug of some kind. >I looked through the email archives >and could not get an answer that would work. I'm using the ADDE format >dates.

I tried pointing to zephyr as the ADDE server for the AM dataset, but a DSINFO seems to indicate that it is not accessible this way DATALOC ADD AM ZEPHYR.UNL.EDU Group Name Server IP Address -------------------- ---------------------------------------- AM ZEPHYR.UNL.EDU <LOCAL-DATA> indicates that data will be accessed from the local data directory.

Not really. Can you setup this dataset so that the remote ADDE server on zephyr recognizes it? This way I could point at the file and troubleshoot the problem from here. The other thing you can/should do is get debug output when trying the plot: SFCPLOT T OLAY 12 1999339 DAT=AM/SFCOBS DEV=GCC This turns on DEBUG messages while still trying to plot (the 'G': graphics). It will allow us to see why the command is failing. Baring both of the above, you making the file available by FTP would be of great help. >Thanks for you help in advance >Mark Tom >From address@hidden Wed Apr 19 08:42:38 2000 >Subject: Re: 20000412: Problem reading MD file FTPed from UW archive (cont.) Tom, Thanks for your help on this project. We ran MDFIX and everything worked fine once we made sure we had the right write permissions on the files. It became a little confused because of the way I had produced the files and had them linked for the students. Just for your information, MDFIX did not give an error if it could not write to the file. Thanks again, Mark
