Hi,
I have these filenames in netcdf listed below
atmPrf_C004.2006.112.03.55.G20_2013.3520_nc
atmPrf_C004.2006.112.05.27.G28_2013.3520_nc
atmPrf_C004.2006.112.05.36.G24_2013.3520_nc
atmPrf_C004.2006.112.05.38.G17_2013.3520_nc
atmPrf_C004.2006.112.07.08.G02_2013.3520_nc
the numbers after 112 is the time. I want to pick these files according to their time in a loop using the filenames. Is it possible?
Please help me if it is possible
Attached are some files as example.

Use the dir function to generate a list of files, then parse the file names in a loop and continue to read the relevant files.

Thanks Rik,
I can read them in a loop but they dont read according to the time as I want. Do you get my point?

You mean you want to read them in a specific order? Then you could parse the file names first and then make a second loop to read the actual files.
ok thanks so much
