I can not visualize my stats.qza or

whenever I try to visualize my files, I get this error

There was an issue with loading the file 16S_rep-seq-dada2.qza as metadata:
Metadata file path doesn't exist, or the path points to something other than a file. Please check that the path exists, has read permissions, and points to a regular file (not a dire
ctory): 16S_rep-seq-dada2.qza
There may be more errors present in the metadata file. To get a full report, sample/feature metadata files can be validated with Keemei: https://keemei.qiime2.org
Find details on QIIME 2 metadata requirements here: Metadata in QIIME 2 — QIIME 2 2022.8.1 documentation

I am using Qiime2 version 2022.8
That is the code I used : qiime metadata tabulate --m-input-file 16S_rep-seq-dada2.qza --o-visualization 16Stable.qza

Please advise
Thanks

Hello @Afaf, are you running qiime metadata tabulate in the same directory as the 16S_rep-seq-dada2.qza file? And have you made sure you are typing the name of the file correctly (for instance should it be rep-seqs not rep-seq?)
