I assume that when you are dumping your database it does include data in the tables?

When I dump my database I usually use this command try this it might work

pg_dump -U postgres -D dbname > filename.dmp

Once the data has been dumped to this file check if the inserted data actually exists in the filename.dmp file.

;) have fun!!!!!!

Try this if you have pure sql dump file to restore

psql -U postgres dbname -f filename.dmp

It works,

Hi, postgresql 7.4beta4 on linux and postgresql 7.3.4 on linux We have a database that we routinely backup using "pg_dump -a" We have to do this (dump the data only) because of various characteristics of the database (e.g. the dump file tries to create fks to tables that it hasn't created yet if we export schema + data).

I have a 600K row table on my production system (running 7.3.3) that I dump and load on my development system (7.4.1) every night using cron jobs. I would like to be able to restore the table under a different table name without first having to play games with the development copy of the table. If I edit the dump file with 'sed' to change the table name, I get 'invalid command \N' errors trying to reload it.

Hi, the restoration of a dump stops at the line above. The dump was created with pgsql 7.3.2 and I need to pump it into a 7.4.3 one. Should anybody tell me what the problem can be and how I can solve it. (There are double apostophes many times in the string - is it normal??? Besides of the field separator of course...) Many thanks, Csaba Együd

Hello, Every so often, I'm asked to help people recover data from tables that were either dropped or where to much data was DELETEed. The complications related to restoring data are a problem. The SAS users are laughing because they can (to a certain extend) easily go back to an earlier SAS table by simply starting dsm. Of course, a flat file table is different than a relational table; but still, the trouble related to restoring DB2...
