Hello everyone,

I want to initialize a case with mapFields but when I try to run the mapped case or decompose it for parallel run, the following message occurs :

wrong token type - expected Scalar, found on line 11379511 the punctuation token '-'

file: .../run/Unabhaengigkeitsstudie/Korrektur/3000/p at line 11379511.

    From function operator>>(Istream&, Scalar&)
    in file lnInclude/Scalar.C at line 93.

FOAM exiting
It is not the first time this problem appears. Actually I never managed to use mapFields because of this problem.
I used this command to map a consistent case (same geometries):

mapFields -consistent <source case>
Any help or suggestions?
