I can't believe they make it this hard. I am at a loss about how to view the data in my database.
Is there an easy way to see what data is in my tables with pgAdmin III? Alternatively, is there a program that I could use that does not suck?
Or, to retrieve all rows, just press the blue data grid.
The tooltip "View data in the selected object" is almost making it too easy.
Try the button with the funnel next to it to retrieve only a selection (for big tables).
Right click on the table and choose "View data"
