Hi Yasin,
If you share your .inp, .pd2 and weather files, maybe someone on the forum will try looking at your model. It makes it easier to diagnose problems and can also potentially rule out issues specific to your computer or to the version of eQUEST you’re using.

Subject: [Equest-users] Maximum number of expression dependency


I am having a problem in my eQUEST model. It shows error "Maximum number of expression dependency lists exceededs". I assume that this is related to the model size. Then I found that You have solved this problem by some some workaround (below):

1. Editing PD2 file with the following lines -
DetailedModelEdits = 1
   ProjTreeType = ( 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1 )
   ProjTreeID = ( 10240000, 10081500, 10280021, 10640002, 10480018,
                  10280020 )
   ProjTreeLabel = ( "...", "...", "...", "...", "...", "..." )
   MaxExpDeps = 10
   I don't know where exactly I should insert these lines? I just put these in PD2 file in the first paragraph before the "..".

2. Blast all "C-" keywords in "eQ Data>\DOE-2\BDLDft.dat". I do't understand this. Shoul I delete just "C-" words in that file or attached words too. For exmaple
"C-Schedule" should be changed to just "Schedule" or I have to delete the complete word "C-SCHEDULE".

And there are another solution which looks so complex to do:

- BDL source code mods to increase the limit of exp dep lists,
- removal of some fraction of the expressions contained in your INP
file, and/or
- the addition of Set-Default statements in your INP file that replace
additional BDL default expressions with static values or symbolic
I don't know how to do it?

So can you please help me in this
