Problem restoring Database

P: n/a
I have just upgraded froom Fedora test1 to test2 which has upgraded
postgres version from 7.4.2 to 7.4.5 (frrom rpm -q)

I have used pg_dumpall to dump my database, the restore appeared to go
OK, except there is no data in two of my tables (only these two)

output from \d \d tb_invoice_header
Table
"public.tb_invoice_header"
Column | Type
| Modifiers
--------------------+-----------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
inv_id | integer | not null default
nextval('public.tb_invoice_header_inv_id_seq'::tex t)
client_id | integer |
payable_recievable | character varying(15) |
amount | money |
amount_paid | money |
date_paid | date |
cheque | character varying(20) |
Indexes:
"ih_pk" primary key, btree (inv_id)

\d tb_invoice_detail
Table "public.tb_invoice_detail"
Column | Type |
Modifiers
-------------+------------------------+-------------------------------------------------------------------
id | integer | not null default
nextval('public.tb_invoice_detail_id_seq'::text)
invoice_id | integer |
code | character varying(15) |
description | character varying(100) |
amount | money |
vat_code | smallint |
line_total | money |
Indexes:
"tb_id_pk" primary key, btree (id)
Foreign-key constraints:
"$1" FOREIGN KEY (invoice_id) REFERENCES tb_invoice_header(inv_id)

The dump file contains all the data

Anyone have any idea what is happening, and more important how to rescue

thanks

Clever, since 7.4.5 hasn't been released yet. If that's actually what it says,
consider getting in touch with the packager, it should probably be 7.4.2-5.
Oh, between minor versions (e.g. 7.4.1 => 7.4.99) you don't need to
dump/restore, you can leave the files in-place. It's only when you go from
7.4 to 7.5 you need to dump/restore.

You don't have to restore into a database, you can just redirect stdout to a
file:

pg_restore --table=tb_invoice_header mydumpfile > dump-invoice-headers.txt

You can manually import this using psql then. I'm a little puzzled as to how
this can happen without any error messages though - might you have missed
one?

Uhh unless I am missing something what you have done is impossible.
There is no 7.4.5....

Are you sure it didn't upgrade from 7.3.2 to 7.3.5? Or WORSE:

7.3.2 to 7.4.2?

If you have your dump still, you should be in fine shape. What flags
did you pass to pg_dumpall?

even more curious is that I have just done a new dump/restore using
pg_dump (ie: not dumpall) and eveything worked fine

OK, except there is no data in two of my tables (only these two)
