Dear Siddheshwar,

Judging from your output, there is a mistake in how you set up the bases for your input.

As can be seen, there is no blank line between the end of the definition for Ti and the start of the definition of the next atom (B). It could be that this terminating blank line is missing for your other atoms as well.

As such, you will either have to add blank lines for the atoms in your $DATA group or add them to the basis files read in by the preprocessor.


Kind regards,
Thom

>Dear All,
>I am facing this issue of illegal basis function. The system consists of B,N,H and Ti atoms. I want to use Lanl2dz ECP on Ti atom, and 6-31G on other atoms. Please find attached the input and output files for your reference. I have made a "basis" folder with Ti-lanl2dz.bas,B-631g.bas,N-631g.bas and H-631g.bas files.
