First of all, you should ask Molpro to calculate properties, otherwise the CCSD 
density is not created (first-order properties are about twice as expensive as 
the calculation of the correlation energy and therefore they are not calculated 
by default). Then you need to ask molden to save the CCSD density (not the 
Hartree-Fock one) by giving the record number where this density is stored. The 
examples for this (plus some other nontrivial examples) using mostly my program 
are given e.g. here http://tiger.chem.uw.edu.pl/staff/tania/scripts/index.html, 
if you want to use Gerald Knizia' properties program, look into the manual. The 
molden file will contain all necessary information present in the wfn file, but 
unless your program can read both molden and wfn files, you will need to rewrite 
the molden file to the wfn format (see
