I am running QGIS 3.10 on a MAC using Catalina (and I also tried on QGIS 3.4) and tried to run SAGA Point Statistics for Polygons. Every time I run it I get an error with it trying to create the layer.

I have: a. taken all the spaces out of names b. Tried almost every possible directory

But nothing works.

Ideas?

Here's the log:

Here is my two cents: You likely have imported a CSV data into QGIS through Add Delimited Layer and been trying to run the statistics tool on it. Many geoprocessing tools do not work properly on CSV layer.

Export the POINTS layer as a new shapefile, and resume working on the shapefile. (Also pay attention to the field name and datatype).


TLDR part:

First, I checked the error message Error: no attributes in selection, then noticed the attribute field name Intake Total was too long for a shapefile (length <= 10).

Then, looking up the input parameters, found there was type=csv; 'POINTS' : 'file:///Users/.../sac%20pacfa%20va%20%20bf%20combined%20may%207.csv?type=csv&detectTypes=yes&xField=Lon&yField=Lat&crs=EPSG:4326&spatialIndex=no&subsetIndex=no&watchFile=no'
