Carol,

If this is truely what you did, you are a very lucky person.  You are always
supposed to dump the old database using the new versions
pg_dump/pg_dumpall.  That way, pg_dump/pg_dumpall can set up the data for
any changes made by the newer version.

Just an fyi for those following this thread.

HTH,

chris
