Hello,

 

 

I am using Postgres version 8.3.17 on one of my database server. I have
received a .sql dump file from my client. Which is supposed to be taken
from a Postgres 8.3.7 db. Now, I have created an empty database and I am
trying to restore the .sql file with command psql command. After few GBs
of restoration, I am getting an error - 

 

ALTER TABLE

SET

SET

ERROR:  invalid input syntax for type timestamp: ""

CONTEXT:  COPY job_step_history, line 16211941, column start_time: ""

 

 

I tried printing this line no - 16211941 from the .sql dump file with
command - sed -n "16211941 p" <filename.sql> . The row has values - 

 

 

17338525        1       309     6       205636  2009-09-04 22:02:46.199
1       2009-09-04 22:02:46.198 1       \N

 

 

What can be the possible cause for this error? Please help.

 

 

Regards,

 

Swanand
