Hello all,I have MI Pro v17.0.3 evaluation version, and am trying to use the GELink tool to export a TAB file to KML so that I have an editable layer with all its attributes showing in a data table in Google Maps. I then want to be able to export that data back out of Google Maps to TAB or Excel, with all the attribute fields. But when I use the tool to create a KML file, my attributes are all in the kml_description field and there are no kml_schema fields - and in Google Maps although I can see the attributes as a list when I click on a Placemark, they aren't in a proper table because they are all in the one Description field. When exported out to KML again from Google Maps, and translated to TAB in Universal Translator, the attribute table for the Placemark is empty.I can't see that I am doing anything wrong - is this how it is meant to work?Many thanks in advance if you can help!Jane
Thank you for your reply, Shweta. I do understand and I did make the selection of an entire vector layer and I can see the attributes in Google Maps, in the data table and when I click on a polygon – but all the attributes are in the Description field - is this how it should be?:
I want to be able to edit those attributes in Google Maps (which I can) but then in the future export them back to TAB with all those attributes seen in a Brower table in MapInfo.
But when I use the Universal Translator to translate the KML file back to tab, the resulting Placemark table Browser has only one column in it called "blank" – and it is in fact empty of attribute data (as are the Browsers of the other tables produced):
Great, many thanks Shweta.
OK great, thanks Bill, that's really useful to know.
Many thanks for getting back to me, all the best,
