Error: Could not create the DBASE part of shapefile
This error message may occur when using the MIFSHAPE utility:
Could not create the DBASE part of shapefile
The mif file is located on the root directory. It needs to be placed in a subdirectory before running the conversion.
Solution or Workaround
- Copy the mif file into a subdirectory under the root directory. For example: c:\mifdata\sample instead of c:\sample.
- Run the utility as normal.
