  • send the self-contained, executable GAMS code that reproduces your problem to the group.
  • send the error message(s) produced by GAMS (if available).
  • send the GAMS version you are using so that people know what system to use to reproduce a problem (on the command line execute "gams ?" or check "Help" -> "About" in the IDE to see your version).
  • start a new thread for a different problem / question.
  • include a concise signature specifying affiliation.
