Dear Gabriele,

Thank you very much for the kind reply! I tried rerun the calculations with 
your suggestions(I used the self-consistent hirshfeld and shape function 
density, also the new TZVP basis for Mo ), now it gives the Net charge for 
Mo 0.319 and -0.160 for S. Is this means the basis set on Mo is stronger 
than S? I'll rerun several tests. Thank you again.
