Column: characters: No such file or directory

Screen Link:

My Code:

From command line:

/home/dq/rg_data$ column characters
column: characters: No such file or directory
/home/dq/rg_data$ cd /home
/home$ column characters
column: characters: No such file or directory

What I expected to happen:
The file to be there.

What actually happened:
It was not.

I even copied and pasted the answer and got the same same issue.

You are running the commands while in the rg_data directory/folder. You need to run them while in the home directory as the instruction states -

Move back to your home directory.

  1. Run column characters to get to know the file characters.

This can be confusing, but dq is the home directory and not home.
