It isn't uploaded indeed. I doublechecked on another simple example
just to make sure. The situation was as follows:
- there are categories 1,2 in layer 1; the attribute name is
"elevation"; for category 1 elevation=100, for cat 2 elevation=200.
- there are categories 10,11 in layer2; the attribute name is
- trying to populate "elevation2" in layer 2 (cat 10,11) with
"elevation" from layer 1 (cat 1,2) results in an error - the
"elevation2" for cat 10,11 is set to NULL:
v.to.db map=nowy_pt_nodup type=point layer=2 qlayer=1 option=query
column=elevation2 qcolumn=elevation Reading data trom the map ... 100%
Querying database ... WARNING: Multiple query results, output value set
to NULL (category 3) 100%
WARNING: Multiple query results, output value set to NULL (category 2)

4 categories read from map
4 records selected from table
4 categories read from map exist in selection from table
0 categories read from map don't exist in selection from table

So this is a bug? Fixable?
