Well, there is a certain pdb format which :Leap accepts. Ususally this
format is made compatible with the PDB data base format in the leaprc
file. I dont know how your file looks lile so I cannot say exactly
what's the can test it by taking a pdb (from the data
base) file and load it into leap ..then save topology and crd file and
transform them into pdb file with ambpdb (with -aatm option)...then you
will get a tipical Amber pdb file and then you can compare it with your
Hope this helps,
