I have been trying to use ogr2ogr to export a table from SQL Server to a shape file. The process works fine, however, any columns in the database table of type Date are being exported as type String(10) to the shape file. I need to retain the datatype.
The same process against a PostGres database works as expected and the Date columns are exported to the Shapefile as a Date.
Is there an error in the MSSQL drivers for ogr2ogr or are there switches I can use to stop this behaviour?
