Reto, I should have also pointed out that the output of the program you attached was *** SUCCESS writing example file simple_xy_par.nc! even if I commented out the line that forced independent writes by calling nf90_var_par_access(ncid, varid, nf90_independent) Also, for your information, another user has recently reported a bug in the implementation of nf90_var_par_access when used with parallel-netcdf: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/support/help/MailArchives/netcdf/msg11678.html --Russ > Sorry to have taken so long to respond to your question. > > I have been using NetCDF-4 Parallel I/O with the Fortran 90 interface for > > some time with success.
