Dear all:

I have the following 6DoF.dat file with only two rows of data (multiphase/interDyMFoam/sloshingTank2D):

2
(
( 0.00 (( 0.0000 0.0000 0.0000) ( 0.0000 0.0000 0.0000)))
( 0.02 (( 0.0000 0.0200 0.0000) ( 0.0000 0.0000 0.0000)))
)

When I run interDyMFoam,it appears to run fine, however after a few seconds, I get an error message:

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
current time (0.03) is greater than the maximum in the data table (0.02)

From function solidBodyMotionFunctions::tabulated6DoFMotion::tra nsformation()
in file solidBodyMotionFvMesh/solidBodyMotionFunctions/tabulated6DoFMotion/tabulated6DoFMotion.C at line 95.

FOAM exiting

why is this error occuring? The time associated with my data value is 0.0 and 0.02. Is this a controlDict problem? Currently my deltaT is 0.01. Should that be changed to something more smaller?

The rest of the interDyMFoam log is appended below. Thanks for any suggestions

Please ignore this post. This was a controlDict problem and I fixed it.
