SPIT throws an error "No fields detected" when a Shapefile with no attributes is loaded. This file (see attached) was generated from AutoCAD Map 3D 2008, and can be viewed in QGIS (v. 0.11) and ESRI software.

Attributes are not required for Shapefiles, nor for PostGIS.

SPIT doesn't works, but Postgis Manager works fine.

I guess we have decision to make: SPIT seems to me that is not developed any more, on the other hand Potsgis Manager is not yet a core plugin, but is developed and has already many more features (and is more robust) than SPIT.

+1 to PostGIS manager for me, but the last word should go to Martin, I guess

#3 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 15 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

I close this one, seems to mw that, in way or another, Postgis Manager is the answer to the problem, then hopefully it will become core in the next future.
