Here is am answer to the general question about converting netCDF data to text, from which it can often be imported into Excel: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/docs/faq.html#converttotext The last paragraph of that question mentions the netcdf4excel tool, which may work for netCDF-3 files on Windows platforms. Another library that can be used for the conversion is here: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/sds/ A step-by-step procedure for gridded data in netCDF-3 files that makes use of the FAN utilities on Windows is presented here: http://www.narccap.ucar.edu/data/ascii-howto.html If the data you want to access is on a THREDDS data server, you can use one of these two procedures: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14650585/best-way-for-excel-users-to-access-netcdf-files-on-a-thredds-data-server http://portalhelp.aodn.org.au/Portal2_help/?q=node/120 In addition, there is this software announced on the netcdfgroup mailing list: http://lists.mcs.anl.gov/pipermail/parallel-netcdf/2008-March/000753.html Note that we have no experience using the third-party tools mentioned above, and you would have to contact the original developers for support. --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: SWP-621801 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Closed
