Tested QGIS d37e03b installed from OSGeo4W.

- Open ESRI Shapefile
- Put over 10byte character in field calculator's output column at attribute table
- Attribute in output column will be NULL, after save

We know in ESRI Shapefile specification we couldn't put column name over 10byte. Could you put any check logic before save?

I can't reproduce here. My field name is truncated but no data loss.

#3 Updated by Matthias Kuhn almost 11 years ago

Same as Nathan here. I have to commit twice (I think first time to truncate the field name, second to really commit) but no data loss.

Kosuke, can you add details about the field type that you are generating?
