Piccard tools error using CollectRnaSeqMetrics

Hi,

I am attempting to use CollectRnaSeqMetrics from picard tools on my BAM files but I am not being successful with it for some reason. Below is the code that I am using:

java -jar /local/software/picard-tools/1.97/jarlib/CollectRnaSeqMetrics.jar REF_FLAT=refFlat.txt STRAND=SECOND_READ_TRANSCRIPTION_STRAND I=Pre_1.bam O=RnaSeqMetrics_1.txt

The problem is the next line:

INFO 2016-01-08 08:54:50 CollectRnaSeqMetrics Loaded 0 genes.

So it says that 0 genes are being loaded, but then it goes on to process the lines in the BAM file and the resulting output says all the reads are intergenic as it is not finding any genes. I have tried it with several other refFlat files, but cant seem to get the program to load any genes with any of the files.

I downloaded the refFlat file from UCSC and changed the chromosome names so they match the BAM file

refFlat file:

Just for reference, the fastq files were paired end and aligned using tophat2 using GRCh38 index.
If anyone can help me with this, it would be much appreciated,
Thanks
