ogr2ogr: issue with filename of Pgeo type

Reported by: pibinko Owned by: chaitanya
Priority: minor Component: Package
Version: Keywords:
Cc: chaitanya, warmerdam


It seems that ogr2ogr (v 1.5.4-2) does not accept filenames of personal geodatabases with short filenames, or containing numbers in the filename..

a) here is the error: ERROR 1: Unable to initialize ODBC connection to DSN for cipaaaa1, [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default drive r specified FAILURE: Unable to open datasource `Pgeo:cipaaaa1' with the following drivers.

b) I did some seem the issue related to MDB files..

  • with file names less than 3 characters in length
  • with file names containing a number (any length)..

a.mdb fail ab.mdb fail abc.mdb OK a1.mdb fail abc1.mdb fail abcedfg1.mdb fail

...clearly: I can't say if this is an exhaustive set of tests, but I hope it can help

the issue can be bypassed by renaming the MDB file, so I am giving this a minor priority
