I have a
.tab file with a ridiculous amount of columns (96). One of my colleagues at my new job wanted to update them manually one by one. I told him I could do that in an easier way using
PostGIS. So I told him to give me the data and let me do my thing.
I converted the
.tab file to a
shapefile, uploaded the
PostGIS, uploaded a table to
PostGIS with the data which was needed for the update. I updated all the 96 columns at once and achieved the wanted ending in a table in
PostGIS. He wanted it back in a
I exported the file as a
shapefile, which went perfect. Then I export the file as a .tab file using QGIS. So I figured I had the end result and have send it to my colleague. He checks it and reports back to me that the last 10 columns are empty, which they should not be. Also the coordinates differ and the polygons are not in the same location as they were in the original file in
MapInfo, which he uses.
I checked it in
QGIS and there is no problem at all. The columns are filled, the polygons overlap with the original data. I am totally perplex.
I know that my coordinate system RD new sometimes differs in code. I remember adding a small line of text in the formula to align it once. So I guess the movement of the coordinates is something I can fix myself. But why do columns appear empty while they are not in
And why can some .tab files I export in
QGIS not be opened in
MapInfo? It gives an error the moment I open the .tab file.
I am researching myself, but I need some guidance to find the right direction to research further to. I'd love some help and that is why I ask the question here.
