You must read a list, or a list and a group, or a shared before you can use the venn command.

Could you please tell me which file mothur is asking from tutorial data? I want to try ven diagram first from tutorial data and then will use my data set.
Please let me know.
Thanks in advance

you need to cluster the sequences…

mothur > cluster()

and then parse the listfile…

mothur > read.otu(list=abrecovery.fn.list, group=abrecover.groups)

and then run the venn command…

mothur > venn()
