Thank you, Wenli.
So does anybody know something about the second question?
My question is that if CCSD(T)-F12 method can be used with the DFT 
orbital rather than the HF orbital.
 From manual, it seems that this is not right. But I am trying this and 
there is no running error yet.
So I want to get answer from some molpro developer or senior user, who 
is sure about this.
Is this kind of calculation wrong and leading to meaningless result?
