Description P Fudd 2003-05-27 19:26:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
I'm looking at rhdb-admin, downloaded 2003-05-26 using:
cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs:anoncvs@sources.redhat.com:/cvs/rhdb co rhdb-admin
and I like the program quite a bit.

There's a problem though; while I've found how to view data (right click on a
table and pick 'view data'), I haven't found a way to insert or delete data
(apart from right clicking on the database and saying 'start shell' and doing it
by hand.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(Database) Administrator Version 2.0-Beta

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Create a test table
2.  Try to add data with rhdb-admin
3.  Try to delete data with rhdb-admin

Additional info:

This is using RH9 and the postgres that comes with it.

Comment 1 Fernando Nasser 2003-05-27 19:39:12 UTC

As the nemu option says, "View Data" is only intended to browse data in the
tables, not to update it.  We added it so that the DBA could inspect system
tables or even user tables to get a better notion of how the data looks like
(see a sample of the data in addition to the schema sometimes helps).

rhdb-admin is a management tool (DDL related) as opposed to a data access tool
(DML related).

Have you tried using OpenOffice to handle your data?
