Hello pgadmin team.

I am using pgAdmin 1.10.0 on Windows XP SP 3.

Varchar is a valid alias for character varying in Postgres 8 as stated here: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.0/interactive/datatype-character.html 
Still, pgadmin does not accept varchar as valid datatype when creating columns on table. It should not be so.

I hope this would be rectified soon.

Best regards,
