[gdal-dev] ogr2ogr SHAPE to MIDMIF

I've got some shapefiles that came out of Oracle via GeoMedia, and I 
need to convert them to MIDMIF.
(they are LatLong)

$ ogr2ogr -a_srs WGS84 -f "MapInfo File" midmif/2822/  
ERROR 1: IMapInfoFile::CreateField() called with unsupported field type 9.
Note that Mapinfo files don't support list field types.

Also,  I get the default TAB format - where do I put the FORMAT=MIF 
statement in?

I've tried the ogr & formats sections on the gdal website, but can't see 
any clues.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks & regards,
