You are definitely correct to recommend saving after each edit. However there seems to be some bugs in the table calculation capability or I am still green enough that I do not understand how it really works. Some of both I think. As of now, I do not see the value of the default to integer arithmetic needing to multiply by 1.0 to get floating point results. No other software I use works this way.

comment How to change position of columns in attribute table?
I misunderstood what you were saying. I just tried to find TableManager and I found the .zip on pyqgis.org/repo/contributed however it does not appear in my plugin manager list which includes the offical one. I have had this problem before, Sextante did not appear until I used QGIS on another machine. Never did install it correctly.

I tried opening what was left in Excel and Open Office, the file was toast. Saving after every column entry sounds reasonable. So the .shp file's .dbf is not altered (the table is in memory) until is is saved? Seems some operations work on the original file whether one saves or not, otherwise a save is required. Is that correct?

I have had mixed results with fooling with the .shp file's .dbf. And once it gets altered there seems to be no recovery. If I had my files in a spatial database (which I know nothing about) would I be able to arrange the columns?
