I´m trying to add a TAB-file containing text-objects to a SQLIte database. I´ve already added points, lines and polygons, but when I try to add texts I get an error - something about an erroneous action on the server (it´s in Danish, so I´m not quite sure how to translate it).

I´ve heard that I might be missing some additional columns or tables, but I cannot find any informations about it.

Any suggestions/comments are greatly appreciated.

Regards Kaare

  • Which version of MapInfo? And please post the error message.

You need to make sure that your table in SQLite has the necessary columns for storing the text attributes.

These columns have been described in this document: MI Pro 11.5.2 New Feature Documentation. The specific type of columns in not stated, but I guess they are all real/double/float, except Feat_ID which is Integer, Label_Text which is Text and Geometry which is a BLOB.
