Hi,

 

Does anyone know how to use SAS open an Netcdf file? Or if SAS has this function?

Thanks!

This seems hokey, and there is probably a more elegant method out there, but you might be able to use R as a translator of sorts. Here are some links that I pulled up.

Import into R as .netcdf:

Export from R into .sas7bdat:

Probably easiest to convert to csv and import from there.
