I have a problem with creating my own BLAST database using formatdb. I downloaded my search results from the NCBI protein to the ASN.1 file format (by going through Send to File from the pull down menu). When I try to create my own database from the asn1 file using the following command:
formatdb -a -i sequences.asn1
I get: "FATAL ERROR: sequences.asn1Input Expected to start with Bioseq-set. line 1"

I checked my asn1 file and the first line is: "Seq-entry ::= set {"

I have not modified the ASN.1 file after downloading it from NCBI. What is wrong? Can somebody help me?
I'm sorry if it's a basic questions but I'm quite a beginner.

Thanks a lot in advance!
