comment In Postgresql, is it possible to change the maximum number of columns a table can have?
Thanks. I solved the problem at the application level by ignoring enough columns to get below 1600. You have the answer to my question though: "There's no run-time config..."

@a_horse_with_no_name my "foolish problem definition" is the simplest one I could think of to convey the point of the question. I know that I can solve the problem in a million+ different ways. I just wanted to focus on the question of postgres' column limit. The real problem is to sync my table with a 3rd party table, so that a web app can display the 3rd party data

@Colin'tHart, you are technically correct, but I'm not going to do that. I solved the problem at the application level by ignoring enough unneeded columns to get below 1600.

Interesting ideas... I solved the problem at the application level by ignoring enough unneeded columns to get below 1600.

As part of the problem definition, I am given a table with 1600+ columns. That cannot be changed. I have a software library that could be modified to condense or ignore columns, but I'm wondering if there is a quick fix. This is one of those situations which you never expected that you would encounter.
