cannot modify data in table

cannot modify data in table


This is my problem.  I have an Access program that, when opened, clears a PostgresQL table and repopulates it.  I do this by calling a couple of sql pass-through queries.  The problem is that it ran the first couple of times, but now the program freezes when I try to execute the queries.  In fact I've tried using PgadminII to try and modify the table, but everytime I try it freezes up.  I've tried vacuuming the table but that didn't work.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

RE: cannot modify data in table

Hi cst172,

You might try to open the table with psql.  Maybe it will give you a clue about what is going on.  Try some select command, update, and delete test from psql to see if it works that way.  Also, you might try a pg_dump to see if that works or if it tell you anything.  I assume your vacuum complete without error but did not correct the problem of postgres or your access app freezing.  You might try a VACUUM FULL VERBOSE.

You might check to see if your using transactions.  If not, give it a try to see if that helps.  If your are, make usre your app end the transaction with a commit or rollback.
