Thanks Matt!  I wouldn't have guessed that was where the message went. It 
immediately popped up before I could try plotting so I thought I had to do 
something before running feff.  In any case, I found that the error had to 
do with multiple ways TkAtoms can save the *.inp file.  In the program [ver 
3.0beta9], the *.inp is generated in the "TkAtoms display Frame 1", 
displaying the xyz coordinates.  In this "Frame 1" window, there is a 
button that gives you the option of saving the *.inp file.  When I use it 
to do so, Artemis doesn't seem to recognize the file when I try to import 
it (hence the error message).  I found that I had to ignore this window and 
use the "File" submenu  (at the top in blue in TkAtoms) to save the *.inp 
file.  I could then import with no error message & finally do the Artemis 
plot.  -Charles
