Hello, I made a metadata table in excel, exported it as a tab delineated .txt file named 16S_meta to my working directory in Cyberduck. In terminal, I accessed my supercluster and ran the commands:
source activate qiime
validate_mapping_file.py -m 16S_meta.txt -o validate_meta
after the command runs I get the error:
Errors and/or warnings detected in mapping file. Please check the log and html file for details.
Does anyone know what might be wrong? I have no spaces or additional formatting that seems to be causing the issue. Is this a software issue?
