New file (downloadable Raw Data from FTDNA on a transfer) will contain less SNPs then your original, Will only contain the SNPs used by FTDNA. Less accurate then your original

Question Number of SNPs

I downloaded the convert tool to fix the problem with the AncestryDNA file.

I compared the template with my Ancestrydna.txt file.

Why would my Dna file appear to be short by 18,532 SNP's?

The template file is 668,961 lines, my file is 650,419 lines. Subtracting the first 19 comment lines, that gives 668,942 SNPs in the template file and 65,410 SNPs in my text file.

Is this an error in processing by the Ancestry lab that shorted me 18,532 SNP's or is my actual dna missing a few strands or something?

How will this affect uploading to FTDNA?

Thank you.

Ancestry changed their Raw Data file omitting some SNPs, whether or not this is due to a new testing chip version or not, no one knows for sure.
This affects how FTDNA recognizes the file. FTDNA upload only will accept the V1 and original V2 Versions of Ancestry.
The Template (fix) converts these smaller ancestry files into the format of the original Ancestry V2 file, adding the missing SNPs as no calls.
Note, FTDNA only uses around 426,923 SNP out of file (only the ones that FTDNA tests in their FamilyFinder test)
All in All there are only about 5000 less SNP in the latest Ancestry Raw Data over the original AncestryV2 format that FTDNA uses. There will not be any noticeable difference on FTDNA end.

Angry Can not upload 23andMe or Ancestry DNA

Hello, I see that this issue is on going. But I am hoping someone knows when it will be fixed. It will not let me upload my 23andMe data or my ancestry data. Please help!

V5 23andMe may never be accepted. You need to get Ancestry to stop changing the format of their data.

Seems everyone gets mad at FTDNA when it isn't FTDNA that is making changes. Why not test at FTDNA and then transfer your data to 23andMe and Ancestry. Oh yes, they don't accept transfers. So get mad at them.

If you do use the tool, please respond in here and let others know if it works or not. So far in my testing its working 100%, but the more people that try it the more we will know if this is a solution until FTDNA resolves it themselves.
Fixed the error for me, thanks a bunch!
