Shapefile conversion

SantiagoPatinoGomez
Hi all
I'm trying to convert a shapefile for use in SMCE. I am using the File->Import->GDAL , and it doesn't crash (which is good, as opposed to what happens when using the Import in the Operation-Tree), however:
I'm finding that the attribute table gets all mixed-up, i.e., the imported features get the wrong OBJECTID's, and thus the attributes are joined to the wrong feature.

For example: original OBJECTID 400  in the shapefile has now become 'Feature 365' in ILWIS, with an OBJECTID=365, and all the attributes corresponding to the original object 365.

Has anyone encountered the same problem? What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Hi I found the answer: my shapefile was multipart, apparently ILWIS doesnt like that. So I converted it to single part first and then imported, success! Cheers
