Sorry to bother, I'm new to this and trying to learn scripting and how to use the scheduler to automate downloads, run an analysis, then save (or export-not sure which is the preferred method), so I could make a loop of specific analyses. I know DAWS can do it, just having difficulty getting my hands around how the script should look and then how to set up the scheduler. Could someone please post an example of something similar that they're willing to share? Thanks.

Bob

As far as the scheduler goes. I use the windows XP schedule tasks (found in control pannel) as opposed to the DAWS scheduler. For the DAWS scheduler to work DAWS has to be open and running. I have several people that use my home computer so I don't want DAWs always running in the background. Using the XP schdule tasks I can open and shut DAWS when I am not around and anybody can be using the computer. Also with the XP scheduler you can start DAWS from hibernation. I also run a script from the same Schduled Task. The command in the run line of the schduled task looks like this:

"C:\Program Files\DigAtmFusion\digatmos.exe" "C:\Program Files\DigAtmFusion\Scripts\maps.dsf"

The script I am running (maps.dsf) follows. I use this for the same thing you are doing (be aware it has my own file directories, maps, etc, you will have to modify for your folders and files). I this run a couple times a day (to get 0Z and 12Z data) to get the whole veritcal picture (300mb to surface). My script is a work in progress. Most of the routines are taken from the help on this forum. There are a couple of bugs and unfinished coloring, but it works and should give you a good start. I then load these files into power point which gives me a very easy way to run a loop.

I have also written a routine that get model forecast and put them into power point so I can loop them. I will post this routine in the Lounge.

The reason put things in power point as opposed to use the NWS loops is so I came draw on the the maps etc.

Dear WxFish (Bruce?),

Why do you use the .png format for the saved files? Is there an advantage (storage space?) or is it just more compatible with Power Point? Thanks!

Bob
