Program fails

We were able to get the program to work when we used gold as the metal but when we inputted our own complex refractive index, the program fails.

The error is "not enough time or memory was allocated to complete the job

There is also another error:

list directed I/O syntax error, unit 3, file /var/ion/data/sessions/1578019/custom dielectric2

It does look like the program is reading in the complex reactive index values, so I am confused about what is going on.

Thanks much for your assistance

    If I were to guess, the dielectric file is incorrectly formatted. I suggest following the formatting guidelines for a dielectric file (provided in the DDSCAT manual).
