GRASS v.db.addcolumn not working

Added by andre mano almost 11 years ago. Updated about 8 years ago.

Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:16629


With GRASS plugin, adding a column (v.db.addcolumn) to a vector point layer created through v.random does not change attribute table structure (even after removing the layer from QGIS TOC and reloading it again). Module returns the following message:

v.db.addcol map=RandomPoints@Curso layer=1 "columns=MinDist DOUBLE PRECISION"

Database connection for map is not defined in DB file

There is no table connected to this map! Run v.db.connect or v.db.addtable first.
Finished with error

#2 Updated by Radim Blazek about 8 years ago

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

v.random does not create table that is expected.

v.db.addcol fails if table does not exist, that is also expected.

v.db.addtable works for me.

Please reopen if necessary and specify which module exactly does not work and what error message it gives.
