Dear Bruce and Scott,

I am a beginner of IFEFFIT, trying to follow Scott's example. In the ZnO DEMO 
PART 1, everything went well before doing the fit, however when I click the 
green button "Fit", I was told  by the message: 

This parameter uses a name which has special meaning in Ifeffit:
You must change this parameter name before attempting to fit.
One common example of this sort is a variable named "dr1", which
should be changed to something like "dr_1" or "drone". 

Could you or anyone direct me? I would appreciate that. 

Best regards,
