Hi,
The attachment is my .out file. It reminds that the Work space exceeded in subroutine HR2DRV and the program will be aborted.
I have added the following command in the .dal file. I don't know why it still has this error.
**DALTON INPUT
.RUN RESPONSE
.DIRECT
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks. Best.

You are running your calculation with the default memory allocation of 64 million double precision words, approx. 490 megabytes.
DALTON tells you it needs more memory. To do that add the -mb option to the script. For example, dalton -mb 1500 to tell DALTON that it may use 1500 megabytes (provided you have sufficient memory on your computer for that, but most computers have more than 1.5 gigabytes available for programs nowadays). If you are not using your computer for anything else while DALTON is running, you can give it most of the installed RAM (but not all, do reserve some memory for the operating system and for input/output buffers).
