Good morning David, I'm glad you were able to get it to work, and I hope you don't mind a quick follow up question. I'm responsible for the Windows port of the netcdf libraries and utilities, and I am curious about what happened when it failed to work. Did you receive an error message of some sort, or did it silently fail? My development environment is Windows 7, 64-bit so I am curious to figure out what went wrong. Thanks for your time, have a great morning, -Ward On 7/16/13 5:17 PM, David Fairley wrote: > New Client Reply: convert NetCDF to ascii or excel format? > > Russ, > > Thanks. Took a while.
