Hi list,

I´m trying to upload a Mapinfo table (grundejerforeninger.tab) to our
postgis db using ogr2ogr. The tabel should be located in the schema
"rk_test" and could exist (e.g. the table should be replaced with the new
one). I´m using ogr2ogr with the following:

ogr2ogr.exe -overwrite -f "PostgreSQL" -s_srs EPSG:25832 -lco PRECISION=NO
-lco DIM=2 -lco LAUNDER=YES -lco SCHEMA=rk_test -nlt GEOMETRY -t_srs
EPSG:25832 "PG:user=k175_test password=k175_test dbname=k175_test
host=webgis.roedovre.local port=5432" grundejerforeninger.tab 

Resulting in,

ERROR 1: CREATE TABLE "rk_test"."grundejerforeninger" ( OGC_FID SERIAL,
NT "grundejerforeninger_pk" PRIMARY KEY (OGC_FID) )
ERROR:  relation "grundejerforeninger" already exists

ERROR 1: Terminating translation prematurely after failed
translation of layer grundejerforeninger (use -skipfailures to skip errors)

What am I doing wrong?
