I am trying to add a new field on an existing shape file using ogr
python bindings but it seems to fail. The same steps work correctly when
a new shape file is created and a field is added to it.
>>> from gdal import ogr
>>> ds = ogr.Open('d:/temp/delete-dublin-shapes',update = 1)
>>> lyr = ds.GetLayerByName('Zones')
>>> field = ogr.FieldDefn('Project',ogr.OFTString)
Any help would be appreciated.
