IntelliJ IDEA parses the specified file according to the SQL dialect assigned to it or its parent. To have the data structure created successfully, this dialect should support DDL statements. SQL dialect settings are specified on the SQL Dialects page of the Settings dialog box.


Note that you can change the SQL dialect for any SQL or DDL file open in the editor by selecting the corresponding context menu command.

  2. Right-click somewhere in the editor, point to Change <current option> SQL dialect to, and then click more.
  3. In the SQL Dialects dialog that opens, click the corresponding SQL Dialect cell, select the desired dialect from the list, and click OK.
