Hello again;
Well. As the use of PGAdmin as source of data is absolutely resolved, 
although with the (SQL dialog). I think that the most needed thing is the 
possibility of paste data (at least one column) in the Postgres tables.
I'm just an user and just can say that is very possible that people use 
spreadsheets (Excel or Lotus with windows) to copy data to be pasted into 
PGAdmin.

(Of course I've missed also to be able to copy parts of tables from PGAdmin 
with my mouse).

Thanks.

Javier
