Hi Jeanna,

Does pgAdmin give you back any error, like permission denied, or 
anything like that?  Can you see all the properties of the table, such 
as indexes, tables etc before you open it?
As it's happening on various PCs and versions of pgAdmin, I'd hazard a 
guess that it's server-side, but I'm not sure.

Also have you tried any other client tools?  EMS do a good PGSQL Manager 
for free (the "Lite" version) - and you could use that to determine if 
the problem is with the server or the client application, a different 
tool may also highlight an error that pgAdmin does not.  EMS is at

Might be worth asking on pgadmin-support(at)postgresql(dot)org as the 
developers of pgAdmin can have a look-see too and might be able to 
suggest other ideas.
