Okay...I answered my own question. I didn't understand from the directions
that I had to compile and install the dll in contrib/array and run the
It works like a charm now.

Subject: Unable to identify an operator '*=' for types 'character varying'
Okay.I'm following the documentation that came with the PostgreSQL source
code (located in /usr/doc/postgresql-7.3.4-2/html/arrays.hmtl in my cygwin
I created have a table with a varchar array in it, kind of like the
CREATE TABLE tbl_db_usuario_detalles (NOMBRE varchar(50), COD_USE
I've added a single record that has two values. It is imported from a
tab-separated text file that has one line, like the following:
The import seems to work fine (if I put quotes around the string values in
the array it fails).
When I do a select statement with the *= operator, I get the following
db=# Select * from tbl_db_usuario_detalles where cod_use *= 'xxxxxx';
ERROR: Unable to identify an operator '*=' for types 'character varying'
You will have to retype this query using an explicit cast
I don't really understand this error. So I tried the next select statement,
which doesn't give me an error, but I get zero results, when I would have
guessed there would be:
Select * from tbl_db_usuario_detalles where cod_use = 'xxxxxx';
I'm guessing the values I have for the array are not correct...any
