Empty file with VariantsToVCF

Hi,

I am trying to convert a dbSNP text file into a vcf file with the following command:
java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -R canFam2_dog_genome.fa -T VariantsToVCF --variant:OLDDBSNP snp131.txt -o canFam2.vcf

Below is the message:

Everything looks normal and no error message shown. Could anyone help to fix this?

Thanks
