Nick, I thanked you for that

I mentioned in the first mail that the structure of the data is such
that to have final data I need to extract 9 (using 9 dct file for each
level) different level files then some of them I need to reshape and
then merge them.


Hope, I have made my query more clear to you.

regards
Prakash
