How can I export a table from postgreSQL to import into DB2?  DB2 can import .csv, .del, .ixf files.  If I can even get a deliminated file, I can import it into Excel to create a .csv.

Please Help.

Thank you,
Mike

Check out the COPY SQL command. Connect via psql and run:

\h COPY

You want the "TO" version.

Alternatively, you can connect to PostgreSQL with Excel and copy the data that way. I do that with OpenOffice.org all the time. Access would work, too.
