$MXQDPT INORB=2 $ENDto read in the converged orbitals and skip the MCSCF step. Am I correct in assuming that in this scenario it is not possible to skip the MQCACI step?
It is still possible to avoid first MQCACI this way, although the way I described before is a bit more economical.
To avoid first MQCACI procedure, add the following to the input
file for the MCSCF stage:
$contrl wide=.t. $end ! The sd=.t. option should be used to preserve the exact symmetry ! of MCSCF orbitals during various transformations e.g. generation ! of natural orbitals or Fock orbitals $mcscf iforb=.t. sd=.t. $end
Upon completion, extract all OPTIMIZED MOs and then moread all of them, including virtual ones in the input for the subsequent XMCQDPT stage.
In addition, add the following to the XMCQDPT input:
$xmcqdpt inorb=2 iforb=0 $end
