If you are using an up-to-date netcdf4-python module and w was returned from a createDataset or createGroup call, then that should work, as this example from the docs shows: >>> fcstgrp1 = rootgrp.createGroup("/forecasts/model1") >>> fcstgrp2 = rootgrp.createGroup("/forecasts/model2") See the docs at http://unidata.github.io/netcdf4-python/ for more info on using createGroup for creating nested subgroups. If it doesn't work, it's a bug that should be reported on the GitHub site by creating an "issue" here: https://github.com/Unidata/netcdf4-python/issues --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: UZE-985140 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Closed
