Only if I either use NF_PUT_ATT (without the _TEXT) or if I leave > out the INTEGER XTYPE argument, the function works. I cannot duplicate the error you are reporting. Could you please try comiling and linking the following netCDF Fortran-77 program, which defines two simple text attributes and writes them to a file named "pa.nc". Then look at the output of running the command "ncdump pa.nc" to see if it is what you expect. If not, please send a small program that demonstrates the problem that we can use to duplicate it here. Thanks! --Russ program main implicit none include 'netcdf.inc' integer stat integer ncid integer var_id stat = nf_create("pa.nc", NF_CLOBBER, ncid) if(stat .ne.
