[molpro-user] Error with symmetry and dummies

Hi,
The solution is partially written in the error report. Molpro put in this case
He1 on the Z axis, and He2 and He3 symmetrically on the plane xz (coordinates:
[+-x,0,z]). So you have symmetry, X, Y for the trimer. You have lost symmetry X
because you put He3 as dummy. So you are left with symmetry Y. It is easy to see
by setting at the beginning the symmetry to nosym (symmetry,nosym) at the place
where you encountered the error report, then have a look at ATOMIC COORDINATES
and pick up the correct symmetry accordingly. Summarizing, the solution is to
put "symmetry, y" instead of "symmetry, z" in the fourth occurence of "symmetry,
z" in your input.
Best wishes,
Tatiana
