User material databse problem
I have defined a new material in using Fluent. I have written it as a new database but when I want to use it I can't upload database into Fluent. It doesn't see any database. What extension should this database have? I have following message:

Error: GENERAL-CAR-CDR: invalid argument [1]: improper list
Error Object: #f

What does it mean?

did you save this material with older version of fluent?

I am working on Fluent 6.3.26

I wanted to know that did you save your data base in same version (6.3.26)? or in the older version.

Some times these problems do occur, just restart the fluent and every thing hopefully shall be fine. ;)

Probably yes, because I just pressed "save" button in "material->user-defined database". Later when I try to open it previous error appears.
I can, of course, define material each time I start analysis but this is very uncomfortable.
