The way I usually do it is:

COPY old_table TO '/tmp/old_table.sql' ;

<create new table>

COPY new_table FROM '/tmp/old_table.sql' ;


Not sure how this would handle your serial columns.

I'm curious if there is a way to move content of a table to another table? I
do not like to create lot's of insert commands and then delete them. I'm
sure there is an easy way to do this. But I would also like to know if there
can be any problem with a coloumn type of serial. While moving the tables
pgsql will change the serial to the next value of the sequence or will it
leave as it is, and when I reach hat number I will have a problem about
duplicate entry
