Error retrieving column 'category'from the metadata


I have been working on fecal microbiome study and I am a beginner. I got this error message saying that "Invalid value for --m-metadata-file': There was an issue with retrieving column 'catagery' from the metadata. I have attached pictures of the error message and metadata file

Welcome to the forum!

I did not find this column in your metadata file. Did you mean to use it for comparisons? It should by a categorical column from your metadata file which separates samples on certain groups, and these groups will be compared against each other.


Thank you for the explanation I changed the word with another header name and it worked thanks a lot
