This makes sense: ncss needs to know what variables you want. (I should have realized that before telling you to try--my bad) Out of curiosity, why did you select ncss access in the first place? If you just want to access the dataset remotely, you could try using opendap: http://myserver.com/thredds/dodsC/CHESS2Aggregation/DetailWholeDataset.ncml Ryan > > Thanks for your reply.
