I am trying to convert a .gen file to a .map and a .ped file using gtool. The problem is, despite having 498 SNPs in my Gen file, the map file being created only has the first snp and is only 1 row long. The command I am using is:

gtool -G --g GENE.gen \
--s SAMPLE.sample \
--ped PED.ped \
--map \
--phenotype phenotype --sex sex \
--num_snps 498 \
--num_samples 966 \
--chr 11 \
--snp \
--log SORL1.log

It is hard to tell without data, did you try running with default settings?

gtool -G --g example/example.gen --s example/example.sample

Thanks for your help! It got me thinking about the problem at a more basic level, and I realized the real issue is I contaminated my .gen file. The problem is, I want to manipulate the file in excel, but once I save the file as a txt or just as the original gen file it ends up not working properly with gtool...
