Unable to read QNWFA_QNIFA_SIGMA_MONTHLY.dat file for ThompsonAero

Good afternoon. I have been trying to get the water and ice friendly aerosol data into the met_em files, but for some reason I can't read the fields from the file correctly. I have tried a lot of the troubleshooting steps, found online, but to no avail. I have attached a copy of my namelist.wps. Due to the proprietary nature of the domain that I am using, I had to redact some of the projection details, so I do apologize for that.

The file, QNWFA_QNIFA_SIGMA_MONTHLY.dat is linked to my wps working directory, and I added the following lines of code to my standard METGRID.TBL:
...
========================================
name=I_WIF_JAN; from_input=QNWFA_QNIFA_SIGMA_MONTHLY.dat
interp_option=four_pt+average_4pt
z_dim_name=num_wif_levels
flag_in_output=FLAG_I_WIF_JAN
mandatory=yes
========================================
name=W_WIF_JAN; from_input=QNWFA_QNIFA_SIGMA_MONTHLY.dat
interp_option=four_pt+average_4pt
z_dim_name=num_wif_levels
flag_in_output=FLAG_W_WIF_JAN
========================================
name=P_WIF_JAN; from_input=QNWFA_QNIFA_SIGMA_MONTHLY.dat
interp_option=four_pt+average_4pt
z_dim_name=num_wif_levels
flag_in_output=FLAG_P_WIF_JAN
========================================
...

Hi,
Can you let me know which version of WPS you are using, and can you also attach the METGRID.TBL you're using? Make sure to attach the actual table and not just the linked version. Can you also attach the QNWFA_QNIFA_SIGMA_MONTHLY.dat file in your WPS directory?
Thanks!
