You're right -  I should have included a code snippet. It's not my code,
so I don't know if I can share all of it. Here's the line where the
problem occurs:

dimension vstore(1:4,0:4,5000000,2),fstore(0:4,5000000,2)

If he reduces the 5000000 to a smaller number, it compiles. As shown, he
gets this error:

ifort adaptnew2.for
compilation aborted for adaptnew2.for (code 1)

The compiler is Intel's ifort 11.0.074

I'm not a Fortran programmer, so I'm a little out of my element here. If
it was bash or perl, or even C/C++, that'd be a different story.
