I exported a shapefile from ArcGIS and wanted to load it into QGIS. However, the following error occurs:
Invalid Data Source: /Users/Desktop/Documents/merged_buffer.shp is not a valid or recognized data source.
When I check the files in the folder, the icons to the left seem white. The other shapefiles have a black icon, originate from QGIS itself and can be loaded correctly. What is the problem here?
