Hi everybody,

I am using the miRNA array from agilent and wanted normalise my data using RMA in midas. But first I think I need to convert the agilent raw data files using express converter. Everytime I load the files and hit the convert icon the following message appears.

Message:
    java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "DATA"
Level:
    SEVERE
Stack Trace:
For input string: "DATA"
    sun.misc.FloatingDecimal.readJavaFormatString(Unknown Source)
    java.lang.Float.parseFloat(Unknown Source)
    org.tigr.microarray.converter.AgilentMev.calculateBackground(AgilentMev.java:386)
    org.tigr.microarray.converter.AgilentMev.run(AgilentMev.java:242)

It seems that the file cannot find the background and the value is set to null. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks
