Yes, you are right. This is a second input that i have made and i have
called AIR->ARIA, but the real problem is not the name that i gave it but
the fact that this name not appear in the compound e assigmat cards (this i=
the motivation because you don't see the name ARIA in the compund card)..

I gave the name Ni to my defined Nickel for not have the problem of a name
too long. I don't belive that is this the problem, but i will try
with"MYNICKEL or somethings like that.
Sometimes i have this problem when i define a compund: for example i usuall=
use a compound with Co, Cr and Ni. I define Co and Cr with material cards
and after i define the compund.
If i don't active the LOW-MAT card for the Cr, FLUKA give me the message of
NO RANDOM FILE error.... but i don't understand why!

Thank you for your help.
