I have 6 columns and there are a few row entries that are blank in columns 2 and 3.   How can I find and replace those banks with '0's?  I'm trying to use phpPGadmin to import a csv file into a table and it wont take blanks in double precision fields.

Thanks,
Sean

Move away the two columns then on at the other place write someting like
=if(CellMoved <> ""; CellMoved; 0,0)

Well you could of course change the insert statement if you like...
