I’m attempting to import a SHP file and have come across a problem. No errors are shown at all during the import process (from the command line), and I get the following message when the import is complete:

21706 rows imported in 7.25 minutes from shapefile 'land_region.shp'.

The problem I’m having is that the actual SHP file contains 257650 records, so the import process is only importing around 10% of the actual features! I’ve checked the SHP file, and it displays correctly in both Arcview and MapInfo.

Any ideas what might be going wrong here? As I said, there are no errors during the import, so I’m totally baffled by this.
