I'm no expert but I have often used either the tab or comma delimited format.
It requires that the fields in the PostgreSQL table are in the same order as
the original and that the data types are formatted similarly, but it has
worked for me. Also a sed and awk'ing of the results can clean up alot of
example, one of my fields is in the timestamp with time zone format but MS-SQL
doesn't differentiate Time Zones, at least not in the database I'm pulling
from. I use this line to add the UTC to the field " sed 's/\t/ UTC\t/1'".

pgsql-sql by date
