Yet somewhere you found a reference to open.ncdf -- a pretty arcane 
function not part of R itself.  Please check what else the reference 
said (and remember for the future that we cannot know what you have 
read, so please tell us).

It is likely you need to install and load the package ncdf.  But that is 
not the only way to read NetCDF files in R (I presume that is what you 
meant), and indeed cannot read the most recent NetCDF format.  There are 
also CRAN packages RNetCDF and ncdf4, and other ways have been tried 
(and can be found by googling).
