To answer my own question, at least partially: I added a new timestamp without time zone column to my copy of the database, and I copied the data from the event_date column into it using "at time zone 'utc' ". I have other times stored in the database in both local and UTC time, so the new column gives me direct correlation to times stored in UTC fields.

Subject: [NOVICE] Unwanted time zone conversion
I am in the eastern US trying to track down events that occurred at a customer site in Vietnam. I decided it would be easier to look at their database on my machine instead of wrestling with a VNC connection half way around the world. So, I used PGAdmin to take a backup of their database, and then I restored it onto my computer. The table I'm interested in now has a column named event_date of type timestamp with time zone. On the customer's computer, the time zone is +07. On my computer, the time zone is -04.
Is there a way to restore the database onto my computer, leaving the time zone in that column unchanged?
Thank you very much!
