Hi

I've got problem with 4.8.8 version of ManWinGIS.
When i edit a shape file and then finish it with .StopEditingShapes. My DBF file fields type are changed. It happens to data type fields -> convert do character fields.

If someone's have the same problem please send me a solution.

thanks


... Ok I found information that MapWinGIS doesn't support date fileds type .... so i think topic it's closed

You're right. The shapefile format uses the dBaseIII format for the .dbf files and that format doesn't support date fields. Just integer, double and character.

Thanks,

Paul
