Dear Dr. Ray Luo,
Thanks for the reply..
i have pasted the file at end of this mail...
i had the same error and one of the users told me to add "fillratio = 4.0" to my binding_energy.mmpbsa ...i did that and again i got the same error...
how can i resolve this error?

Can you take a lot of your pbsa_lig.8.out? There should be an error message
inside before the premature termination of the program.

Subject: [AMBER] Error running MM script

Dear All,

I am using AMBER10... I am using MM PBSA for calculating Binding free energy
of a ligand...

i ran 1 ns production MD..

 i used the following commands: extract_coords.mmpbsa > extract_coords.log and binding_energy.mmpbsa > binding_energy.log

After i run binding_energy.mmpbsa > binding_energy.log i get
the following error

        /opt/amber10/exe/sander -O
-i pbs -o pbsa_lig.8.out -c
/home/bharatam/amberresults1/vikamb_q1results/snap shot_lig.crd.8 -p
/home/bharatam/amberresults1/vikamb_q1/mol.prmtop not successful

mol is the name of my ligand...

How can i overcome this error?????

Please help...
