Dear John,

I searched for the answers in the previous messages to the forum, but unfortunately in vain. I maybe expressed myself not entirely exactly. What I meant by "adding a field to component" should have been "defining the field inside a volume". I have used an example from /advanced/purging_magnet to define a non-uniform magnetic field which is read from file containing information about the field. In order to do the same with the non-uniform electric field I have made a "conversion" of the magnetic field to electric (as shown below) feeding to the program a file with information about the electric field:

G4ThreeVector positionEl3Field = G4ThreeVector(0,0,1*m);
   G4double fieldValueEF3 = 0.2*kilovolt/cm;
      G4FieldManager   *pFieldMgrEF3;

      //Field grid in A9.TABLE. File must be in accessible from run urn directory. 
      G4ElectricField* PurgEl3Field= new TabulatedElField2D3D("MMPS_in_edit.txt", 0,0,0);


      G4cout<< "DeltaStep "<<pFieldMgrEF3->GetDeltaOneStep()/mm <<"mm" <<endl;

      G4EqMagElectricField *myEquationEF3 = new G4EqMagElectricField(PurgEl3Field);

      G4int nvar3 = 8; // Need to integrate 8 variables: x,y,z,p[xyz],E,t 

      G4MagIntegratorStepper* myStepperEF3 = new G4ClassicalRK4(myEquationEF3,nvar3);
      G4MagInt_Driver* myIntgrDriverEF3 = new G4MagInt_Driver(1.0e-3*mm, myStepperEF3,
      G4ChordFinder* myChordFinderEF3 = new G4ChordFinder(myIntgrDriverEF3);


      bool fieldIsInitialized = true;

Here, MMPS_in_edit.txt is the file with the electric field components (x,y,z,E). The program compiles, however, when I try to run it, the program returns "Segmentation fault" and quits without giving a hint of what could go wrong.

I would really appreaciate if you help me with this problem, Thank you.
