Description

I installed the QGIS Master today; on a quick tour I noticed that my old VRT files that were working on previous QGIS's are not opening anymore. Error message is: not a valid or recognized data source.

History

#3 Updated by Salvatore Larosa almost 11 years ago

Windows / Linux ?
GDAL/OGR version ?

#4 Updated by Salvatore Larosa almost 11 years ago

CSV file name in SrcDataSource must be identical to the file itself.
Note that in the VRT file it is missing underscore symbols!

Confirmed?

#5 Updated by Thaddeus - almost 11 years ago

Tested on Linux:

QGIS version 1.9.90-Alpha QGIS code revision exported

Compiled against Qt 4.7.0 Running against Qt 4.7.0

Compiled against GDAL/OGR 1.6.3 Running against GDAL/OGR 1.6.3

GEOS Version 3.2.0 PostgreSQL Client Version 8.4.4

SpatiaLite Version 2.4.0 QWT Version 5.2.0

OK, just tried same file under Win and 1.7.4 and it's working here !

#7 Updated by Salvatore Larosa almost 11 years ago

Repeat:
in VRT file changes from:

<SrcDataSource relativeToVRT="1">Volcanoes of the World__summary.csv</SrcDataSource>

to
<SrcDataSource relativeToVRT="1">Volcanoes_of_the_World__summary.csv</SrcDataSource>

or rename your CSV file!

Try and let me know!

I'll try that underscore trick on Monday, but today I re-tested the same file on a 32-bit Ubuntu and worked OK?, the QGIS is slightly different though.
