PostgreSQL set Default Value

I am facing issue while adding default value as ‘–’ in PostgreSQL It working when I set any integer instead ‘–’ but as I input ‘–’ in default column it showing error

Please help how to fix, I am using window GUI for postgresql

Does it work any better if you put quotes around it? I’ve never used this database, so I don’t know if they’d be single quotes or double quotes, but it seems logical that a string would be quoted. I’m not sure why the GUI doesn’t do it, given that it “knows” it’s a string column, but then I’ve never used the GUI either.

my advice for this, and not just in postgresql but also in mysql, and also in every other database, is to use a reference table

enum is the spawn of the devil – here are some previous threads on sitepoint where i have advised the same
