Inconsistency between selected files and metadata provided


I’m trying to upload my raw data and metadata to Microbiome analyst (raw data processing stage), but I keep getting these really strange errors that I have no idea how to fix. (screenshot attached). I’ve tried making the whole metadata file from scratch again, making sure the tabs are aligned, nothing works.
This is even weirder because I have gotten files to upload in the past, so I genuinely don’t know what I’m doing wrong THIS time around, specifically.

metadata 1.txt (5.7 KB)

Any help would be appreciated. These samples are important, and I need to get them processed as soon as I can…


Hello Clara,

Can you please follow our post guidelines to provide an example dataset? It’s hard to tell only from the metafile.
