I've had a career in GIS since 2006, but it's also a hobby where this site helps answer lots of those off-the-beaten-path questions I always come up with.

Glad to help, but this site really like new questions to be posted individually so if you've found it hasn't been answered already, ask it =)

comment Loading .shp file into QGIS gives error message
Maybe even try dragging and dropping just the .shp file into QGIS to see if it loads properly. If it doesn't there could be some missing shapefile parts like underdark says or something else going on.

comment Calculate normalized summary
If they are relative to the area in a discrete way, then it might be as simple as summing the values per var2,3,4 column during the dissolve.

comment Calculate normalized summary
It's still a little difficult to understand because if you dissolve by var1 the SHAPE_area/SHAPE_length field will be updated automatically if it's a feature class in a filegeodatabase. That's the first step... But I think we need some clarity on the rationale used to populate var2,3 and 4. Sounds like that should be done after the dissolve based on a field calculation. It might be helpful if you can explain how you came up with var2,3 and 4 in the first place.

comment ogr2ogr from personal geodatabase to spatialite produces “non-spatial” tables
Maybe consider using -nlt PROMOTE_TO_MULTI for that, where it converts all the features to multi-part geometries but allows you to import a geodatabase that's got multiple feature classes in one go.

You can try to force the geometry type from ogr2ogr with -nlt LINESTRING too.

@dassouki I don't think Postal Codes and Civic Addresses are the same thing so this probably isn't a duplicate =)

comment Cannot clip FileGDB using Ogr2Ogr
Can you try adding -nlt PROMOTE_TO_MULTI to the ogr2ogr command? It could be failing because of a geometry mismatch.
