I am importing a .csv file in QGIS and I have also made the *.csvt file where I have specified my data types. I still cannot use "Toggle editing" and "field calculator".Whether I must save it as a shapefile and import it again? Is there any way to work with the .csv file without saving it as a shapefile and import it again?

  • How did u imported the .Csv file? via any plugin? – Arun Sep 25 '13 at 10:50

    As far as I know, no. It brings it in as a non editable 'virtual layer' - you must save it to an OGR editable file first. – Darren Cope Sep 25 '13 at 12:14
