How to convert PostgreSQL to CSV

Full Convert is designed for ease of use and reliability to make sure you get your job done as quickly and as simply as possible.

Source database is known as Postgres, PG

Target database is known as TSV, Flat file, Comma-separated text, TAB-separated text (related files: csv, tsv, txt).

Making migration easy for you

Full Convert is a fully self-tuning software. Your migration will work as expected without you needing to adjust anything.

Data types are different in CSV compared to the source PostgreSQL. We automatically adjust them as we copy the tables so you don't have to worry about it. You can adjust the mapping rules if you wish to change the following defaults:

  • bit logical
  • boolean double
  • bytea blob
  • char ntext
  • cidr ntext
  • citext ntext
  • decimal double
  • double precision double
  • enum ntext(255)
  • float double
  • geography ntext
  • geometry ntext
  • hstore ntext
  • inet ntext
  • int integer
  • interval integer
  • json ntext
  • jsonb ntext
  • macaddr ntext
  • money double
  • real double
  • smallint integer
  • text ntext
  • timestamp datetime
  • timestamptz datetime
  • uuid ntext
  • varbit blob
  • varchar ntext
  • xml ntext

Full Convert migration in 4 easy steps

1.
PostgreSQL connection

Connection to PostgreSQL

We will choose PostgreSQL from the list of available source database engines. Connecting to Postgres is straightforward - we need to specify server name/IP, username, password and database name.

2.

Connection to CSV

We will choose Text from the list of available source database formats and fill in connection properties. You can simply click ellipsis (...) button to select the folder containing your delimited text files. You can also specify the file filter if you wish. By default, we include CSV, TXT, and TSV files.

Default delimiter is Comma (use it if you have comma-delimited files), but you can change it to Tab (for tab-delimited files), or any other character.

Start the conversion

All source tables are selected for conversion by default. In case you only need some tables, simply deselect the ones you don't need - or deselect all, then select just the tables you do need. Click the Copy your database button to get started.

Conversion

Conversion is highly-optimized to run as fast as possible, yet provides top-notch reliability. Huge tables are converted in small chunks at a time, preserving memory and ensuring that your computer stays fast and responsive.
