I wanted to add a new field to an attribute table for a county map I downloaded. When I added it, I needed to change the location of the field to move it over next to the county name so I could keep track of it.
I downloaded table manager, but it came with a warning to use the refactor fields algorithm instead.
I used that, it worked. I saved the new table, added the new information. Everything was displaying correctly, I saved it, closed the program, and when I opened it back up, the refactored layer still appears, but there is no attribute table for it. It even saved all of the old categories I had specified.
Did I do something wrong?
