first of all thanks for the great plugin which saves me hours of copy and paste work :-)
Anyway I have a little issue with Annotation of FIMS data via Biocode Plugin on Geneious 5.5.6.
When using annotation function, most data from my FIMS Excel file is imported to my sequence files, but there are some information (rows) missing in the column selection of Geneious (which are in my Excel file).
For example I am missing the rows "DNA Sample ID". A colleague of mine is missing "DNA Sample ID" and "Tissue ID". The columns can not be added via "manage columns": they are not listed to choose, but all others from my FIMS Excel File are. Our FIMS Excel File has 87 rows. Could this be a hazzle for the plugin?
Is it possible that all the rows for your "DNA Sample ID" column are blank (i.e. have no data)? Geneious won't annotate a field that is blank for all documents (this is to get around a problem that other users were having where they had too many columns on their documents).
If your column is not empty, would you be able to send me your excel file, and a screen shot of your biocode connections window so that I can try to reproduce the problem? steve AT biomatters.com
