[molpro-user] Energy of DFT calculation in MOLPRO

Dear All,

Can I ask you a simple question on the DFT calculation? How can I get the energy calculated from DFT? When I use the ENERGY card as other method such as MP2 and CCSD, it gives zero. 

I guess there is a simple solution for this but I cannot find it from the MOLPRO manual.

Thank you very much for your help!

Kind regards,

Dear Users,

I am currently working with the dma program, with atomic sites as it is
programmed by default. Nevertheless, I have tried many times to add extra
atomic sites in a dma using the directive "add" as shown in the Molpro
manual but it seems that the "add" directive is unknown for the command
"dma" (at least, this is the error message I get)

I have also tried to declare those extra atomic sites as dummy atoms
hoping that Molpro would consider them as atomic sites, but without any

Here is my input:




N1, 0.000000000000E+00, 0.178500000000E+01, 0.000000000000E+00
N2, 0.103769600000E+01, 0.224701200000E+01, 0.000000000000E+00
O3,-0.109543200000E+01, 0.129728200000E+01, 0.000000000000E+00



Perhaps someone has an idea ?

N.B: I am currently using the 09.1 and 08.2 versions

Dear Wanyi,

Thanks for your reply! Your suggestion 
canonical,2141.2;}? worked. 

However, they are called PSEUDO canonical orbitals.
According to the manual (section 15.5) they come from diagonalization of an effective Fock
operator.? Thus, if I am thinking correctly they are not the real mcscf molecular orbitals
(that is, the final optimized orbitals resulting from the mcscf procedure). Is this correct?
Thanks again!
