There is a .gdb file with several census tables I downloaded from TIGER. I am trying to join one of the tables to a shapefile but am not able to as the join field for the table contains excess characters. When I go into the field calculator to make a new attribute field without those characters, I found I was not able to and was greeted with: "This layer does not support adding new provider fields."

Is it possible to somehow edit this attribute field in QGIS or will I need to use ArcGIS for it?
