    lexical decision task input file not running (case 15916)

    I just started using Direct RT and trying to create a lexical decision task, and not sure why my input file is not running. Can someone help point out what's wrong?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Dan,


    The problem was that your .csv file did not save with the proper comma spaced value format, probably due to how it was created. You can see this if you open it in a program like Microsoft Notepad. What program did you use to make the file you uploaded?


    I fixed it by opening your file in my copy of Excel 2013 (I don't think the exact year of Microsoft Excel matters, just something recent since 2003 should be fine) and saving it in .xls Microsoft Excel 2007-2003 format. I then closed and reopened the .xls version of the document in Excel and saved it as a .csv comma separated format document. This version had the correct spacing and runs in DirectRT. I've attached a copy for you to try.

    Check to see if the bit depth of your image files is 8 bit. Simply right-click the image file, select Properties, and then the Details tab
