[postgis-users] Projection Question.

I have a shape file that is in NAD83, UTM, Zone 11. When I export the
table (pgsql2shp) I would like to also create a .prj file for the
shape file; I'll do this with a Python script. If I use the text from
the spatial_ref_sys table ArcMap complains that the projection does
not agree with the data in the shape file. If I replace and use the
original .prj file I had when I imported the data ArcMap is happy.
The reason I'd like to use the text from the spatial_ref_sys table is
so I can create the .prj files on the fly.
The polygon is located in South East BC, Canada (Near Oliver).
Attached is the text from the original .prj file.
Can I even use the text from the spatial_ref_sys table in a .prj file?
