I've got a whole bunch of shape files that have soil testing data in them that I would like to merge together so I can do some analysis but when I use the Ftools merge shape files command I get an error:AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'count' I checked the shape files and I can't find a column that has a blank space in it they are either "null" or they have a value.

Any ideas?

Thanks! Dean
