CRU 2.0 dataset .dat format (ASCII) not readable in ArcGIS

Discussion created by wilsonnavarrete on Mar 13, 2014
Hi All,
I came across an issue downloading a CRU 2.0 file (http://www.cru.uea.ac.uk/cru/data/hrg/tmc/). The dat file contains wind values at 10 min resolution. File does not have a header. My question is what will be the best way to make file readable in ArcGIS? File only contains values for coordinates, and 12 values for wind speed each month, and so on (I attached a sample as txt). I tried adding a header suggested in a different forum but it did not work. I appreciate any help.
