# Error while splitting PDBQT file

I am trying to split to a pdbqt file containing 178 compounds into individual pdbqt files. I have been using the Autodock Vina_split.exe file to split the multiple entry file however I keep running into the following error. What can I do to prevent the error.

• (A) Empty file? Does the file open in PyMol? Also, you can always split it there with split_states. (B) Is the file really called output.pdbqt or is it output.pdbqt.txt and Windows is hiding the extension? Sep 22 '20 at 8:00
• There could be many reasons. Maybe lack of permissions or the space in the path. Can you open the file with a different program? Are you on Linux or Windows etc. Sep 23 '20 at 2:22
