For a whole host of reasons, if I want to load data into SQL Server, I need to convert the shapefiles to tab files, open them in MapInfo Pro and use the Easy Loader tool to create tables on my database server.
When I tried to do that today, my tab files won't open in MapInfo Pro. Version 12.0.2 just crashes, and version 12.5 reports that it cannot open the file.
I have used the Universal Translator on my shapefile and that has created a tab file that MapInfo Pro can read.
I don't know when my work flow stopped working. I haven't had to upload a table for quite a while so I can't remember if it was before or after my latest QGIS version.
Any ideas of what may be happening?
