Thanks.
I moved the IMPROPERS from NA out of the CMAP section to the "IMPROPER" section.



The other error
Code:
 PARRDR> NOTE: atom type "HT  " is removed from previous group
 PARRDR> NOTE: atom type "OT  " is removed from previous group
[...]
      ***** LEVEL -3 WARNING FROM <PARRDR> *****
      ***** Null nonbond group found. Redo.
      ******************************************

was due to a double definition of OT and HT in the "NONBONDED" section.

Now it works.

You can keep your holy-than-Thou attitude... since this is not the only thing I have to worry about. And frankly said, when processing several thousand lines of code/text a day I might miss a line even by a second and third review. And since I never got this kind of "oh so clear error message" I gave up at some point. Sorry I am a human _error_prone_ being.

Anyway, thanks again for your help.

kind regards
