More information is needed. When you ran the program, it probably
created a partial output file. Please run ncdump -k on the partial
output file, and tell us what it says: classic, netCDF-4, or
something like that. If it says "classic," then there is probably
some small error in the order of commands, or the exact arguments to

If you still can not find the error, then please show a copy of your
script or a reduced version that gives the error. Also show your NCL
version, platform type, and printVarSummary on the variable that you
were trying to write when the error occurred.

Please reply to the user list, NOT to me privately.
