empty vcf file after using VariantsToVCF

Hi,

i have SNPs from another SNP caller which does not produce vcf files so i wanted to convert those using the VariantsToVCF walker. I used the following command:

java -Xmx2g -jar  /PATH/TO/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T VariantsToVCF -R reference.fa -o mySNPs.vcf --variant mySNPs.bed

GATK version 2.7-4

i took a bed file as input which had the following format:

chr1    895 896
chr1    941 942
chr1    1096    1097
...

The walker runs without any error message but i get an empty vcf file (0B, nothing) apart from a mySNPs.vcf.idx and a mySNPs.bed.idx file.

Any idea how to fix that?

Thanks a lot!!!

Best wishes, Karin
