CCL:Babel Charges (from *.hin)



 I am trying to convert HyperChem (*.hin) files to a format readable by
 Insight that includes CHARGES on the atoms using Bable1.06. My system
 includes a heteroatom (Pt) that is not recognized by some file types,
 and *.pdb files do not incorporate charges. That is not a problem, the
 heteroatom type can be assigned manually. However, when using Babel to
 produce a different file format (*.mol, *.mol2, etc.) from the original
 *.hin file, the charges are not retained. Any suggestions? Advance
 thanks.
