First, make sure to include ncl-talk on all of your replies. I was not the
only one helping you with this topics, and there is never a guarantee that
I can keep helping you in the future.
Second, the best way for anyone to analyze the problem will be if you can
provide the script causing the error in a form that we can run ourselves as
well as the data needed to run the script. If the data is large ( >1 MB,
too big to attach to an email for this list), then the data is best
uploaded onto NCL's ftp servers - for information on doing that, see
https://www.ncl.ucar.edu/report_bug.shtml#HowToFTP and let us know the
exact filename. No one can look at the file names on the server, so having
the exact file name is important.
