Hi again,

I am trying to create a sqlite database for my project and need some  

1.  Do particular field names have to appear in the database for GRASS  
to recognize them?  Exampl STR_1?

2.  How do I use the various field types (eg. TEXT, NUMERIC, BLOB, and  

3.  Do I need an entry number, or is the first number sufficient?

What I am doing currently is entering tombs.  I currently need easing  
and northing data for UTM coordinates  and catalog numbers (which  
enters as CAT. 1, CAT. 2, upto CAT. 75).  Later, I may want to add  
fields like Townland name, finds, astronomical orientation, etc.

Thanks for any guidance you can offer.
