Hi-   I'm wondering how to import database schema & data with pgAdmin?  Right now I'm just using the sample sakila database, http://downloads.mysql.com/docs/sakila-db.zip.  Is there a way to do it without the sql command line?  

thanks!

ok, so I found there's a Data Migration tool but I can't get the installer to download!   http://www.sqlmaestro.com/products/postgresql/datawizard/download/

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Downloads\postgresql_datawizard_setup.exe. could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.

I've tried 5 or 6 times since midnight last night with no luck.  Tried emailing them but no luck yet...

Which database environment are you using, PostgreSQL or MySQL?  In the question you are trying the MySQL db, but the tool download is PostgreSQL?

And I see you are using pgAdmin, so this must be PostgreSQL, right?  So are you trying to import MySQL database to your PostgreSQL server?

I finally got the data migration wizard installed!

just in case other people need explicit instructions:

I found & ran the StackBuilder application, which is included in the postgres server install.  I was able to install the data migration tool from there.  Trying it out now, I'll let you know if I get it working!

Good luck. So guess you are trying to migrate a MySQL server to PostgreSQL. Got you now on the mix of zones and information.
