Hi,

ZigGIS errors out with below message when pointing to a spatial table
in Postgres of version 9.0 .
Postgres 9.0 (32 bit) is installed on a Windows Server 2008. Using
backup and restore process database was copied from postgres 8.4 to
postgres 9.0.

ERROR: 42601: zero-length delimited identifier at or near """".

ZigGIS worked with the same table using postgres version 8.4.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Vaish

Also, I'm using ArcGIS 9.3 to run Zig GIS.

Thanks,

A lot of people have had trouble with 9.0 with various applications because of the change in bytea output to hex.

You might try doing:
ALTER DATABASE mypostgisdb SET bytea_output='escape';

As described in FAQ:

http://www.postgis.org/documentation/manual-1.5/ch03.html#id2632865

I haven't yet tried Zig on 9.0 yet so not absolutely sure its the same issue. I think Safe FME users have complained as well and Safe is making changes to correct the situation. So I guess its not just a java driver issue as I had originally thought when I first came across it.

Hope that helps,
Regina

Actually you can also try updating the npgsql driver.

And this FAQ is more up to date -- guess I better update it to include npgsql update as well
