A quick success story and note of thanks here. I often need to move
many database tables from AS/400 DB2 into PostgreSQL. Out of habit I
tended to do this with MS SQL Server DTS or MS Access. Neither of
these were giving me any joy on a recent project. Finally the light
went on in my head and I tried ogr2ogr and it worked perfectly - easy
to script, easy to log progress and errors, easy to install, etc, etc.
We all know what a powerful tool ogr2ogr is for our spatial data, but
I was overlooking its utility for more mundane tasks. Thanks Frank, et
al for a great, versatile tool!
