Dear Ross,
Thank you form your prompt answer.
unfortunately I still get an error message which is :
"An error occurred running this job: *A required composite data file was not
provided (RgeneticsData.ped)"
*I did exactly what you mentioned except that my ped and map files have been
uploaded using the ftp procedure.
Do you have any clues ?
Thank you so much for your help,
