[Shapelib] I Can't display attributes from a shapefile generated with shapelib

Hi everybody, another time

I made a program to create polygons in a shapefile, from a table in a csv
The things went good, but today I wanted to display an attribute contained
in the dbf file, and the arcmap didn't display the
name of the polygon. I thought that it was a problem with my version of
arcgis, but then I tried to show a label of other shapefile, wich I created
within arcmap. And in the same layer it was possible to show the attrib from
the second shape, and was not possible to show the label of the first shape,
created with shapelib.

Somebody has seen this?

Well, thanks for your help.

Joaquin, from Mexico
