I have a geodatabase (filename ends with .geodatabase) and when I drag this into QGIS, I see all the tables and can browse them.
On some of those tables there attributes that look like they are the shapefile encoded or in a binary format or something. See this example
In the table properties, source fields, this field is defined as Type:QString TypeName: Binary.
Assuming I am correctly understanding this and it is the shapefile. How can I get QGIS to see this as a layer?
