Importing Error manifest file

Hi Can you assist me with importing my manifest file I keep getting the following error shown below There was a problem importing manifest_file.tsv:

manifest_file.tsv is not a(n) PairedEndFastqManifestPhred33V2 file:

Found unrecognized ID column name 'sample-id forward-absolute-filepath reverse-absolute-filepath' while searching for header. The first column name in the header defines the ID column, and must be one of these values:

Case-insensitive: 'feature id', 'feature-id', 'featureid', 'id', 'sample id', 'sample-id', 'sampleid'

Case-sensitive: '#OTU ID', '#OTUID', '#Sample ID', '#SampleID', 'sample_name'

NOTE: Metadata files must contain tab-separated values.

There may be more errors present in the metadata file. To get a full report, sample/feature metadata files can be validated with Keemei:

Find details on QIIME 2 metadata requirements here: Metadata in QIIME 2 — QIIME 2 2022.8.3 documentation

Looks like your manifest file is actually not a tab-separated text.
Try to copy it to google sheet file and then download as tab-separated file.
