Subject: [NOVICE] Problems with copy

Hi, I am trying to import data from a cvs, file using copy the only problem i
have is that the first field of my table is automatically generated.
So I wanted to know if there is a way to select which columns copy should use.
the command i am running is the following

copy client from
'/path/client.del' using
delimiters ',';

Can i get it to do something like
import from file foo insert into (col2,col3 ...) ?
