Hi Ashok. I'd suggest using the weather data tool Elements. This tool will let you display all of your weather file data in tabular form. You can easily make edits by copy/pasting data from other sources. You can also make quick charts or export to several different weather file formats including .epw or .bin

@Justin: When I open Jaipur EPW weather file available here using elements, I see values of both Global Solar and Diffuse Solar radiation are same, these values must not be same according to theory, Would you please explain what exactly happening here ?
