*Taken Dump :*   /usr/bin/pg_dumpall > /home/inpreet/postgres.sql  /*which
was taken at client site*/

*Restoring Dump :*   su - postgres /*This process I am doing at local site
so thats why psql and dumpall are in diff directories*/
 /usr/local/pgsql/bin/psql -d template1 < /home/inpreet/postgres.sql

Sir I have some table values which are of type timestamp and those columns
have values like
""2004-10-09 10:03:36.689993"". So is it possible that when I am restoring
values this columns are creating all sort of trouble??? as timestamp field
means date time at the time of insertion of record and I am trying to insert
earlier date time.

Regards
Inpreet Singh
