<h2 class="formatter-title wiki-paragraph-2" id="paragraph-file-formats-for-rquery">File formats for RQuery</h2>

Download an example of file format for RQuery: decathlon.txt

Files must be absolutely in *. txt tabulation

The decimal separator must be a dot and not a comma, for example (2.5). Please replace the commas with dots in your file.

No duplicates in row names and column names.

To avoid error :
<ul class="bb_ul">
<li class="bb_li"> Avoid column names beginning with a digit. Ex: use C1 instead of 1C
</li><li class="bb_li"> Avoid accented characters and spaces in row names and column names. Replace spaces with an 'underscore'. Ex: use 'voiture_renault' instead of 'Voiture renault'.

In general, the rows correspond to individuals or samples and the columns correspond to variables or parameters describing individuals (Ex: hair_colors, eye_colors).
