I just make a suggestion: you may try to write your database as a ascii
file, using
O>  writ  *   database.tmp  ;
and then look in the file if the datablocks beginning by  TOTO_...  (if
TOTO is your molecule label)  are there.  Take all of them and read them
inside O by S_A_I as an O formatted file.
Gerard, am I saying rubbish ?
