thanks @phloem! Weird how all the examples show the use of = but the correct syntax is == !!!

@JohnBarça as per Chris R's points, certain editing tasks (cell-based changes to value) will work, otherwise you can corrupt your data.

comment Including chart based on fields in CartoDB infowindow?
I wonder if chartjs.org would tie into CartoDB.js?

comment How is attribute data in the DBF file tied to location data in the SHP file?
@Vince as an ESRI instructor for 4 years it was rule #1 not to do this. Even if you can edit a single cell in a .DBF why even advocate for the practice?

comment Is there a way of auto_increment for the ID column
It might be easier to abandon the .SHP! Who knows what new ventures it will take you on...

comment Is there a way of auto_increment for the ID column
Are you using shapefiles? Do the ID's have to be the same after every export, or could you populate the ID field after every edit session?

comment Raster Calculator with conditional arguments?
@KKL234 no problem - but for what it's worth there is no mention of using == on the ArcGIS help docs...which is strange... glad I could help!!!

comment Fill polygons via data-defined pie charts
Some may say that what you're trying to do is a 'bad idea' - especially for a map. If you simply used the chart plugin (assuming you can install the plugin) you can remove the fill from the polygons and just use the icons from the plugin...otherwise, maybe a map isn't what you're after...

I should also ask if you're trying to export from Oracle native spatial, or back-end SDE tables?

comment How to update the source code for apps built with ArcGIS Web AppBuilder widgets?
Brand new product support is likely best answered on the product support forum... that's where I'd put my money.

comment QGIS Points are not retaining original attributes
can you let us know how you're doing the original 'mapping' of the birth and death locations? What is your source data format? Are you geocoding from an address or plotting an XY? Details like this might help out...
