Just FYI, this might get better response on the admin mailing list...
So, what is your local PC running? Linux, BSD, Solaris, Windows? If NOT
windows, then just install a copy of postgresql on it real quick to get
access to the pg_dump utilities et. al. and use that to remotely dump the
data out of the server onto your local machine.
Are you updating / inserting back into the big server, or locally? either
way, the easiest way I've found to do it is to use a scripting language
I'm familiar with (perl, PHP, python, tcl, etc...) and massage the data in
whatever ways you need to and then insert it into the database with that
scripting languages pg interface package. Other ways of doing it would be
to get it into a SQL dump format and use psql to insert it.
