I am working with ArcSDE (9.3.1) data in QGIS(1.7.4) added via a .vrt file. The geometry displays no problem and appears to function normally.
The expected field names appear in the attribute table but the properties dialogue shows all the string fields as type (unknown) and all the string field entries show "null" values.
The real and integar values display as expected.
ArcSDE is running on SQLServer2008 R2.
Pretty sure this is some sort of data type mismatch.
Any insights welcome.
