Affected QGIS version:2.18.7 Regression?:No
Operating System:Windows Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:not reproducable
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:Yes Copied to github as #:24474


If you want to join 2 shape files on an attribute column, QGIS crashes.

Workaround: first save (one of) the shape file(s) as csv, then do the join

Scenario to reproduce:
1) Open a new project
2) Add a shape file
3) Add a second shape file
4) Go to "Properties" of on of the shape files
5) On the "Join" tab create a join with the other shape file
6) Crash.

Have you tries by removing/disabling ALL the 3rd party plugins (and restarting QGIS)?
Can you attach sample data/project? Thanks!

#2 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 6 years ago

Not confirmed here on a clan 2.18.7, Windows 7 environment. Please attach sample data and/or try with no 3rd party plugins.
