I am trying to convert a MapInfo tab file with ogr2ogr
I did this:
ogr2ogr -f "ESRI Shapefile" testing.shp TEST.tab
And get this error;
ERROR 3: Failed to parse field definition at line 8 in file TEST.tab FAILURE: Unable to open datasource `TEST.tab' with the following drivers oid LargeInt ;
QGIS gives me this error when adding a vector layer:
Invalid Data Source: C:\Temp\Struer\TEST.TAB is not a valid or recognized data source.
I tried this:
Change the LargeInt to Integer in MapInfo.
Then it works fine.
So it seems like there is a problem with the LargeInt type.
Is it GDAL that can't handle this or does anyone knows a workaround?
