I used the command below to update variant information, but something went wrong, it seems that my vcf has 2 variants in the same position.

so I used the following command:

 plink --file dis-MT --set-missing-var-ids @: # [b42] \ $ 1, \ $ 2 --recode --out  dis-MT

but the following error appeared:

Error: The --set-missing-var-ids template string requires exactly one '@' and
one '#'.
For more information, try "plink --help <flag name>" or "plink --help | more".

what should I do?

Remove all the spaces from the middle of the --set-missing-var-ids argument.
