Oops, no it doesn't have the highest number of splits. It is three less
than MySql. Naturally, I should not expect duplicate records - the
primary key should prevent this.
By comparing the splits in the PostgreSQL DB to the MySQL DB, I found
that three were missing from the PostgreSQL copy. By searching the
PostgreSQL log file for errors inserting those guids, I found that, in
all three instances, I had entered text for the memo field that was
longer than the 50 characters allowed (by the DB schema). PostgreSQL
responded by refusing to enter that record. MySQL simply truncated the
So how many characters are allowed in a memo field?
MySql and PostgreSQL had identical lists of account guids and
It will take more effort to find out why things are missing in SQLite as
I am not aware of any error log files.
