VariantsToTable exxtract DP on mutect2 results

I want to obtain from vcf a table with position and DP. I try to use VariantsToTable but There is no wa tooobtin DP values.

##INFO=<ID=NMD,Number=.,Type=String,Description="Predicted nonsense mediated decay effects for this variant. Format: 'Gene_Nam

Unfortunnately I obtain NA value for DP value

chr4    367275  6.79    17.75   A/A NA

How can resolve this problems?

    There are no DP values in your example VCF. The Mutect2 VCF should have DP values. How did you produce your input VCF? Please post your exact command line and version.

    thanks for your help. I Use mutect2 (3.6-0-g89b7209)

    java -Xms2g -jar /illumina/software/PROG2/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T MuTect2 -R {params.genome} -I:tumor {input[0]} -I:normal {input[1]} --dbsnp {params.dbsnp} --cosmic {params.cosmic} -L {input.target2} -o {output}"

    Hmm. I vaguely remember MuTect2 in GATK3 not outputting the DP. The DP is output in GATK4 Mutect2. Can you try using GATK4 Mutect2?
