Ticket #2177 (closed bug: duplicate)
OGR converter: CSV export is broken
|Reported by:||neteler||Owned by:||borysiasty|

|Component:||Python plugins and bindings||Version:||Trunk|
|Must Fix for Release:||Yes||Awaiting user input:||no|
In trunk, the conversion of a SHAPE file (points) to CSV fails. It creates an empty ASCII file. Additionally, the button description is felt to be confusing: "Dataset" does not indicate that a directory is meant.
Second bug: if the "Dataset" directory already exists, the converter fails with "Failed to create...". In the shell terminal a message is seen that it already exists: it would be important to catch this directory-present error and ask the user to suggest a different name.
"Layer" as button description is also unclear (for CSV): indeed a file name is meant.
