I'm about to start a big project converting 25,000 MapInfo files to File Geodatabase. I'm using FME to process the files. I want FME to search all files in a directory (and subdirectories). When FME encounters a TAB file which references a raster, I get the following error:
TAB files referencing raster data cannot be read through the MapInfo reader. Instead, use an appropriate raster reader. Error fetching dynamic schema definitions from reader `MAPINFO_1'.
Is there some sort of format attribute for MapInfo files which will identify TAB files which contain geometry and which ones reference Rasters? I would also like to identify TAB files which reference Excel files or Databases.
I could try skipping these by ignoring failed readers,
but I want to be able to list the TAB files that I'm skipping and store those in a spreadsheet or text file.
