I've discovered for myself and also read other post about an issue using csvt file to define the field types - String, Integer, Date, Real ect... The csvt file appears to work as described when importing a csv file as a vector layer but does not work when using a delimited text layer.
The problem I have is I need both the "Date" feature from the csvt and the "watch" feature that the delimited layer offers to automatically update the csv file data whenever it changes.
Does anyone know of a way to add this type of "watch" capability in a vector layer?
UPDATED: Let me ask the question another way. I'm hoping this is a novice question that has a simple answer. Is there a way to update a vector layer's attribute table without having to recreate the layer?
