Hi Lizzy,

There is perhaps a format problem? Tools in Text Manipulation can probably help to troubleshoot. Cut column c1 by itself, then c2, etc. Another options is to start over by converting all whitespace to tabs, then testing the cut operation again.


Hopefully you have resolved the issue already or this helps to do that,

Best,

Dear Galaxy users

I am trying to cut a tab delimited file using the cut option under text 
manipulation. When the columns I wish are cut out, the resultant file contains 
only '.' (dots) where the data was in the previous file.

Any ideas how to resolve this problem?

Lizzy
