[fdo-users] OGR/TAB write access?

OGR has write access, because it can create a new TAB file, but it does not support update of existing files. Are you trying to create a new TAB file? If yes, then it would not be possible with the current OGR provider, since it does not map the OGRDataSource::CreateDataSource() API.
