Its late so I haven't looked too closely but I did spot a couple
> f2r = f2.read()
> f2lines = f2r.split('\n')
Why not just use readlines() instead?
> f2lines = f2lines[1:-1]

I think it will also filter the last line which you may not want!
Try using [1:] instead...
> out = open('test.sql','w')
> for m in range(len(samples)):
why not just use
for m in samples;
> out.write("INSERT INTO sample(sample_name)VALUES("
> "'"+samples[m]+"'" ");" "\n")
+ m + ...
> for d in range(len(f3lines)):
for d in f3lines:
> a = samples.index(samples[m])
And won't this always return m?!
Hmm maybe not if there are more than one instance of
whatever is at m, but I'm not sure that finding the first
instance is what you think you are doing...
I don;t know if any of the above help solve the problem but
they may make the code easier to read which is a start...
