Hi folks !
I am new of the list even if I use PostgreSQL\PostGIS since I was in Planetek to work.

I have a problem with psql  command line on Windows XP. I want to set password for the 
user postgres in order to execute an sql script directly from a batch file without entering 
password from the prompt.

The command is :

psql -U postgres -d mydb -f script.sql

I have used pgpass.conf file with the syntax :


and it doesn't work.

How can i do ?
