Hi Philippe the easiest way to look at this by having the complete
input file available. Would that be possible?

Dear All,
   I am using the 1DDynamic representation of an electromagnetic field for a gunf with the following block
1DDynamic 20 True
0 11.5 2999
0.0 2.0 199
... 2998 lines ...
when I track particles arranged on an initial grid I observe a modulation of transverse momentum as function position (see plot on the right below) while the use of a 3D map directly produced in omega3P give the expected dependency (left below). Could somebody comments if anything in my block above if wrong?
The call inside OPAL is as follows:
GUN: RFCavity, L = gun_len,
     VOLT = 40.0,
     ORIGIN = {0,0,0},
     FMAPFN = "Ezvsz.dat",
     FREQ = gun_freq,
     LAG = (gun_inj_phase*Pi)/180.0;

Thank you very much. All the best,  -- Philippe.
