[ADMB Users] Retrospective analysis

Following Steve's approach I set a "nyrs_r" variable and made sure that the
data dimensions agreed.
I initially encountered plenty of errors (solved by removing the indexes in
the data, e.g.  C=elem_prod(elem_div(F,Z).....);
instead of  C=elem_prod(elem_div(F(1,nyrs),Z(1,nyrs)).......);) and although
the compilation and building finally passed the checks
the running of the model failed:

Incompatible bounds in dvar_vector elem_prod(_CONST dvar_vector& v1,_CONST
dvar_vector& v2)
Process catage6109_rec_mod_ret exited abnormally with code 1

I guess it is a problem with the dimensions but I just can't see it.

Attached are the .tpl and .dat files.

Thanks in advance.
