Hi all, I am relatively new to bioinformatics research and am trying to use annovar on a vcf file I inherited from another person. I am running the following line of code:

perl /project/annovar/table_annovar.pl \
  --vcfinput exome_calls_pass_step2_normalized.vcf \
  /project/annovar/humandb/ \
  -buildver hg19 \
  -out exome_calls_pass_step2_normalized_anno \
  -remove \
  -protocol refGene,genomicSuperDups,avsnp147,esp6500siv2_all,1000g2015aug_all,exac03,gnomad_exome,gnomad_genome,cadd13,dbnsfp33a,mpc,bravo, \
  -operation g,r,f,f,f,f,f,f,f,f,f,f, \
  -nastring NA \
  -otherinfo

and getting the following error output after it completely runs everything:

perl /project/annovar/table_annovar.pl --vcfinput exome_calls_pass_step2_normalized.vcf /project/annovar/humandb/hg19/ -buildver hg19 -out exome_calls_pass_step2_normalized_anno -remove -protocol refGene,genomicSuperDups,avsnp147,esp6500siv2_all,1000g2015aug_all,exac03,gnomad_exome,gnomad_genome,cadd13,dbnsfp33a,mpc,bravo, -operation g,r,f,f,f,f,f,f,f,f,f,f, -nastring .

I have tried also removing the -otherinfo flag and had the same error. Looking at the structure of the vcf there does not appear to be an otherinfo column. does anyone have any suggestions as to what is the problem here and how I can fix it? Thank you so much!

Hello, I also got the same error as you. " Error: the last column in header row should start with 'Otherinfo" Did you manage to fix this error? Can you tell me how to fix this error please?
