Error: Could not create the DBASE part of shapefile

Error Message

This error message may occur when using the MIFSHAPE utility:

Could not create the DBASE part of shapefile

Cause

The mif file is located on the root directory. It needs to be placed in a subdirectory before running the conversion.

Solution or Workaround

  1. Copy the mif file into a subdirectory under the root directory. For example: c:\mifdata\sample instead of c:\sample.
  2. Run the utility as normal.
