Usually, when you run a query, you receive results in a table format. Each statement appears in a separate tab in the Services tool window. For example, if you have two
SELECT statements in the query, you will see two tabs in the tool window.
The Services tool window includes a list of consoles that are grouped according to a connection session to a data source.
For more information about query consoles and Services tool window, refer to Query consoles and Services tool window.
Open a new tab for each new query
By default, IntelliJ IDEA updates the same tab with results each time you run a new query after the previous one. You can change this behavior and create a tab each time you run a new query.
In the IDE settings Ctrl+Alt+S, go to.
Select the Open results in new tab checkbox and click OK.
Use custom titles for tabs with results
You can define a tab title in the comment section before the query. In the Treat text as title after field, you can reserve a combination of symbols or characters after which any text will be treated as a tab title. By default, no combination is used, so any text after
/* is treated as a tab title.
Open settings by pressing Ctrl+Alt+S, navigate to.
In the Treat text as title after field, define a combination for tab titles.
To disable this feature, open settings Ctrl+Alt+S, navigate to Create title for results from comment before query checkbox., and clear the
For more examples of custom titles for tabs, see Name the result tabs at youtube.com.
Pin the tab with query results
If one and the same tab is used to show your query results, and you get the result that you want to keep, you can pin the tab to the tool window.
Right-click the tab and select Pin Tab.
You can also view the query results within the editor. To do that, use the In-Editor Results feature.
To toggle the In-Editor Results feature for the current file, click the In-Editor Results icon.
To toggle the In-Editor Results feature for all files across the IDE, open settings by pressing Ctrl+Alt+S and navigate to . Clear the Show results in editor checkbox.

Click the In-Editor Results button to view result sets one above another.
Edit values in the result set
In the result set, click a cell value that you want to edit.
Specify a new value and press Enter.
To submit changes to a database, click the Submit icon (), or press Ctrl+Enter.
Compare two result sets
Run queries to tables that you want to compare.
In the Services tool window, click the Compare with icon (), and select the result set that you want to add to diff.
If needed, change a value of the Tolerance parameter in the comparison dialog. The Tolerance parameter defines a maximum number of differences that are allowed between two result sets. For example, if you want to consider two rows as equal if their data differs in a single column, enter
1in the Tolerance field.
See another example of comparing two result sets in Compare data at youtube.com.
