If so what am I doing > wrong? Yes, I think it is. One thing you're doing wrong is including netcdf_par.h after netcdf.h. According to a note in some release notes that doesn't seem to have made it into the actual documentation: Users of parallel I/O with netCDF-4 please note: starting with the 4.1.2 release the parallel I/O functions are prototyped in netcdf_par.h, not netcdf.h. You must include netcdf_par.h BEFORE netcdf.h to use parallel I/O with netCDF-4. http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/release-notes-4.1.2.html That also seems to be in the 2012 netCDF workshop section on using parallel I/O: For parallel builds you must include "netcdf_par.h" before (or instead of) netcdf.h. http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/workshops/2012/pnetcdf/BuildingParallel.html I don't know if that's the problem, but it's the first problem I spotted, so you might want to try just deleting the "#include <netcdf.h>" statement from your test_append.c. --Russ > Also I tried to stay in def mode only first (I.e.
