on my WRF-ARW terminal but this is what i got

-------------- FATAL CALLED ---------------
FATAL CALLED FROM FILE:  <stdin>  LINE:     401
error opening for input; bad date in namelist or file not in directory

please help me what should i do. here is the link of my full namelist wps and namelist input
Thanks a lot !
The first thing to check is to look at your working directory, and make sure that does exist there.
if it is not there, please link this file to your working directory, then try again.
If you do have this file and real.exe still failed, please send me your namelist.input to take a look. Thanks.
