I'm new to GRASS and GIS in general, so please forgive my ignorance...

I have problem with loading Vector Data (.shp) into GRASS

I used the following steps 1.1. and 1.2: http://qgis.org/en/docs/training_manual/grass/grass_setup.html?highlight=grass

In the end I have choice loaded layer (.shp) and when I clicked the "Run" button to begin the import, appear error: Unable to open data source

I have all files like .shx, .shp in the same directory. I don´t know what I´m doing wrong.

    Do you have .prj and .dbf as well? Can you load and view the shapefile directly into QGIS as a new vector layer? – AndreJ May 8 '14 at 12:24
  • Yes, I can. It´s strange.. I have cfg, dbf, prj, shp, shx and I can view the shapefile into QGIS. I worked with the shapefile in QGIS. I used the Topology Checker Plugin and now I want to clean the shapefile, but GRASS doesn´t work. – m123 May 8 '14 at 12:59
  • Which file from the exercice data are you using? – AndreJ May 8 '14 at 13:05
  • I don´t have data from some exercice, I have own data. Do you think, that the data can be wrong? – m123 May 8 '14 at 13:11
  • Hard to tell the reason. Can you run the same GRASS command inside the Processing toolbox? – AndreJ May 8 '14 at 14:43
