RE: handling huge data.

Hi JJJ777,

You can use the copy to/from command to move date between comma delimeterd files and postgresql tables.  The following link is from the postgres 7.3 document regarding the copy command:


Also, if the have phpPgAdmin installed it allow the moving of data between CVS files and postgres tables.  If you need the php code for a custom app, you could take a look-see at the phpPgAdmin CVS code since its open source and available for edit.
