Greetings,

I recently installed postgresql 7.3.4.  I tried creating, dumping and 
restoring  a small database  in 7.3.4 and it worked successfully. 

Today however I tried restoring some databases I had backed up using pg_dump 
some months ago with PostgreSQL7.2.1.  The databases were backed up  using 
pg_dump with default settings.   I had used  pg_dump and pg_restore 
frequently with version7.2.1.  I am now however unable to restore the 
database(s) in 7.3.4.  I receive the error '[archiver] could not open input 
file".  Typically the input file is a text file. 

Help would be appreciated.

Yours sincerely
SX
