If you were converting to mol2, you would not see that error. That
error message only comes up with the MDL .mol format, not Sybyl .mol2.
To convert from PDB to mol2, type something like this:
babel 1ABC.pdb 1ABC.mol2
OTOH, if you're trying to convert a PDB to an MDL molfile (not mol2)
as you said in the e-mail, you'll need to use one of the 2.0
snapshots, which supports the v3000 Molfile and >999 atoms. (As the
error message indicates, earlier versions of the file format do not
support >999 atoms or bonds.)

You can convert SMILES to mol2 easily. However, the SMILES format
does not contain coordinates, which is probably what you're asking
about. The current versions of Open Babel do not perform coordinate
