I'm trying to perform finite field calculations, but I'm getting a strange error. It's water with DFT (BLYP) and d-aug-cc-pVTZ, but no matter the method (I try with Hartree-Fock) or the basis set, the error is the same.

Here is the .dal file :

Does anyone have an idea of what it means and why can't I apply field in other direction than the Z one ?

Thanks in advance,
