The table in question is called "referentiel.adr_cad_numvoie_ponctuel" in the PostgreSQL database. But in QGIS, and this is the first time I've seen something like that, in the Browser panel, the table is displayed under the name "referentiel.adr_cad_numvoie_ponctuel.geometrie", I don't understand why there is this "geometrie" (which is the name of the geometry column). I don't understand what it is doing there. It is the only one of the many tables in the database, which is written this way in QGIS.

This is normal. If you had multiple geometry columns in a table, the table would be listed several times with each geometry column. This allows you to choose which geometry column you want displayed on the map.

  • Indeed, I did not realize it the first time. Thank you.
