Metadata loading


(sara) #1

Hi,
I am starting to use QIIME2 for the first time and using PuTTY, a free SSH and telnet client for Windows, to work out on sever. I am using QIIME2-2018.8. I have an issue when trying to load the metadata. These metadata exceeded the Keemi test of qiime2.
here are the commands I’m trying to run:
qiime metadata tabulate
–m-input-file sample_metadata.tsv
–o-visualization sample_metadata.qzv

The error message is:
command not found

Thank you!

Sara

Hi!
Did you try it like this?

qiime metadata tabulate \
  --m-input-file sample_metadata.tsv \
  --o-visualization sample_metadata.qzv

Yes!

The error message is:
Error: QIIME 2 plugin ‘metadata’ has no action ‘tabulate–m-input-file’.

Thank you!

So you are still running into errors? Can you attach a screenshot of your terminal with error and command?

@sara it looks like you need to add a space in between “tabulate” and --m-input-file.
