AMBER: Question about loadMol2

Hi All,

I am having a problem with the loadMol2 command in xleap from Amber version
9. Basically, when I try to load a molecule from a mol2 file (generated by
VMD), I get no errors but the unit is not created. So, whenever I do an
edit, desc, or check on my unit, xleap says my molecule doesn't exist.

The reason I am doing this is because I want to preserve my molecule's
bonds, which are killed when I try loading my molecule from a PDB file into
leap. Any suggestions?

Many thanks in advance,

check: Argument #1 is type String must be of type: [unit molecule residue
usage: check <unit> [parmset]
