comment If-then expression in Mapinfo label expressions
Brilliant. One other complication that I found when I ran this. It should not put any label where the St_No is '0' or Null.. Can we add this condition. Would it be something like ...{ "R") * Int (St_No <> 0))... }?

comment Search for string and only display characters before it in Mapinfo label expressions
So whose answer should I pick? you both answered the same but neither of them get all characters from the left up to the first space. Thanks for pointing me to the reference guide. I didn't know it was there.

Thanks. It is printing Pxxx rather than 1/12. I want it to print from the first character upto the first space character.

@user30184 -thanks for the confirmation. Maybe we should elevate this to a bug in QGIS/GDAL/OGR ...

comment QGIS/OGR shp to tab export - crashing Mapinfo due to number format issues
@user30184 -does this help? georezo.net/jparis/mb_r/doc/Tab_file_format/tab_file_format.htm --- I know that deleting the field with the wrong specs worked and also converting the shp to tab using FME (from MI) and using Globalmapper worked without any manual changes. I will add the offending shp shortly.

comment Insert sequential row and column values automatically into a fishnet dataset
@PeterHorsbøllMøller yes this could work and I included this in my question but I am hoping that someone already has a solution for this. It would be great to look at the code behind the arcgis tools mentioned to see what they did.

comment QGIS/OGR shp to tab export - crashing Mapinfo due to number format issues
@Zoltan -cool but it's just adding a step, you can also edit the table in open office but really if a software is converting a file from one format to another it should automatically make sure the fields are correct for the new format. Globalmapper (shp-tab with shp having the wrong specs for direct conversion to tab) automatically outputs a compatible file..
