#1 Updated by gjm - over 13 years ago

Works for me when I open csv layer through the open vector method. It doesn't work when I open a csv file using the delimited text plugin. Which method was causing the problem for you?

#2 Updated by Paolo Cavallini almost 13 years ago

Could you please check if it si still true, otherwise closing it? Thanks.

#3 Updated by Alexander Bruy almost 13 years ago

This is true when point layer created with Delimited Text plugin. When CSV opened as geometryless layer with Open Vector all works.

#4 Updated by Anne Ghisla almost 13 years ago

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

With 880088c1 (SVN r15704) (and probably older revisions, but I didn't test), moving the CSV file raises a "Handle bad layers" dialog, and allows to find the files created both by Delimited Text and Open Vector.
