Hi,
thanks for your help, but I don't understand why is not working here:
lionel[ETD-2006-01__PM2.5_DALTON]624>datas
                         Sortie[624]:
[['05/01/2006', '33', 'A', '10', 'N'],
 ['06/01/2006', '41', 'A', '30', 'A'],
 ['07/01/2006', '20', 'A', '16', 'A']]

lionel[ETD-2006-01__PM2.5_DALTON]625>ra=rec.array(datas)

lionel[ETD-2006-01__PM2.5_DALTON]626>ra
                         Sortie[626]:
recarray([('05/01/2006', '33', 'A', '10', 'N'),
       ('06/01/2006', '41', 'A', '30', 'A'),
       ('07/01/2006', '20', 'A', '16', 'A')],
      dtype=[('f1', '|S10'), ('f2', '|S2'), ('f3', '|S1'), ('f4', '|S2'), 
('f5', '|S1')])

lionel[ETD-2006-01__PM2.5_DALTON]627>rec.fromarrays( [ra['f1'], ra['f2'], 
ra['f4']], formats='a10,i2,i2')
