I'm trying to calculate a simple CASPT2 calculation for s-trans butadiene, but when the output comes out, I see that one of the orbitals included in the active space should be exchanged out for one of the inactive ones. I tried the alter kw, and I am getting the correct output for exchange:
"Molecular orbitals exchanged:
In symmetry 1 : 18 17"
However, when I view the buta.rasscf.molden file, I see that the orbitals have not been exchanged, and I get the same final energy as when I had not exchanged them. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I'm sure that the two orbitals need to be exchanged, but I can't seem to get it to work. Can I get some help? Is there another way to exchange the orbitals? If needed, I can include my input file.
