When I run v.dissolve on my vector...
v.dissolve --o input=pass2@mapset1 layer=1 column=fttcp output=pass3
The dissolving appears to work but the column name in the attribute table has changed from 'fttcp' to 'cat'.
Also, although the input has a dbf file, the output does not (so I assume it is storing the attribute table in a different format or something?).
Is there a way to tell v.dissolve to retain the original column name or is there a way to rename it?
Also, is there a reason v.dissolve doesnt write a dbf. Is there a way to get it to write the attribute table to a dbf or is there a way to convert the vector so it uses a dbf?
I am using GRASS 6.4.2 on windows 7
