Dear Forum,

I am having some problems projecting a smaller basis set onto a larger one:

First, I run an SCF calculation with a smaller basis set (6-311G** in this case), which produces a file, which I have called:


Then I have the following directive in my input file:

vectors input project "6-311G**" imidOOH_htrans_uccsdt_nwchem_scf.movecs

However when this runs NWChem doesn't recognize the keyword "project" instead it thinks that it is a directive of the form:

vectors input "filename" output "filename"

my output shows this here:

 ao basis        = "ao basis"
functions = 312
atoms = 16
alpha electrons = 31
beta electrons = 30
charge = 0.00
wavefunction = UHF
input vectors = project
output vectors = /home/gpw501/tryptophan/oxidation/imid/h_transfer//imidOOH_htrans_uccsdt_nwchem_lrg_proj.movecs
use symmetry = F
symmetry adapt = F

Obviously this doesn't work becuase I have no file called "project"

So my question is what is the correct syntax for this? The current directive I have has been taken directly from the NWchem documentation:

Example 3:
vectors input project "small basis" small.movecs
This directive will cause the calculation to start from vectors in the file "small.movecs" which are in a basis named "small basis". The output vectors will be written to the default file "<file_prefix.movecs>".

Is it because I am using an incorrect version? -->

   nwchem branch   = 6.3
nwchem revision = 24277
ga revision = 10379

Thanks in advance.
