I have two shp layers with different numbers of fields and slightly different attributes of those field, like the column name or field length. I arranged them so they are in the same order and now want to copy points from the Layer Georef_FO to the Layer Georef_FO_2. Screenshot attached.
I put both layers in edit mode while in the attribute table window and then just copied all records from Georef_FO and pasted them into Georef_FO_2. I get all the points on the map but no information in the Name Field, just NULL Values. (the "Name" colums is right now the only column in Georef_FO containing any information and I want this to be copied into the layer "Georef_FO_2".
Restarting QGIS doesn´t make the values appear in Georef_FO_2. There are still only NULL Values.
I couldnt find out how to change field length of a field in an existing layer, so if that may be helpful please explain how to do that.
