Cannot get geometry object from data you send to the GEOMETRY field

Hi All,

I kept getting error:Cannot get geometry object from data you send to the GEOMETRY field

We have a POLYGON table TBL_BDY which has two columns :CODE, BDY .BDY is meant to be like a geometry column except the data type is text.

In the BDY column : the format of the latitude longitude is arranged as : 10 -10|1 -1|10 -10|.....and so on...it is seperated by a pipeline.

My effort is to try to spatialize the table.

I created a replicated table with an additional column of GEOMETRY.

CREATE TABLE tbl_bdy_geom
(CODE VARCHAR(4),
BDY TEXT,
GEOLOC GEOMETRY);


I then try to insert the table by replacing theipelines with comma...but I ran into error:Cannot get geometry object from data you send to the GEOMETRY field


insert into tbl_bdy_geom (code,bdy,geoloc)
select code,bdy,polyFromText(REPLACE(`bdy`, '|', ',')) from `tbl_bdy`;

Any help is much appreciated!
