I have been trying to create a basic raster from an ASCII file with non-real world coordinates. I get this error every time I run the ASCII to Raster command, as well as the 010067 Error in executing grid expression, which is probably related to the first error. I can't even get this simple file to convert:

ncols 2
nrows 2
xllcenter 0
yllcenter 0
cellsize 1
nodata_value -999

1 0 0 1

any thoughts?
