Hi Julie,

I am sure people would love to help but:

  • Although you tagged this thread, the tag you are using is unique and will not aid people to find your thread (see: Tagging Content )
  • The thread is not posted in a place that is directed towards a specific audience (see: What are Places? ). In your case it could be Managing Data

May I presume that the .asc format you refer to is the ASCII Raster format? What does the African dataset look like? If this is raster data, you can use the Clip (Data Management) tool and using the country as Clipping Geometry. Next convert to ASCII format using the Raster to ASCII (Conversion) tool.

In case you have vector data, clip the vector data first, convert to raster and then convert to ASCII.
