Base recalibrator error

Hello, I am trying to run baserecalibrator on a bam file after it has completed the Split'N'Trim + ReassignMappingQuality module as documented in the RNASeq Best Practices but am getting an error.

java -jar /home/swong/bin/GenomeAnalysisTK-3.3-0/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar –T BaseRecalibrator –R /home/swong/reference/hs37d5.fa -I TNBC_0019_1_BE_Whole_T3_O2KON_J00264.proj.Aligned.out.PICARD.sorted.dedup.ADDRG.SPLIT.bam –knownSites /home/swong/gatk_bundle_2.5/b37/dbsnp_137.b37.vcf –knownSites /home/swong/gatk_bundle_2.5/b37/Mills_and_1000G_gold_standard.indels.b37.vcf -o J00264_recal_data.table

ERROR MESSAGE: Invalid argument value '???T' at position 0.

Not sure what I am doing wrong; I am very new to this and am trying to learn but following the tutorials exactly. Thank you very much!

    Thank you so much pdexheimer!!! It was such a simple mistake. I have been pasting all my commands in Word to keep track of what I did and never thought that will cause any issues.
