Also, you can select text formats like CSV, JSON, HTML, Markdown, and other formats (for more information about export options, see Import/Export options.
Before PhpStorm 2020.1, if you select the default extractor from the list, you set this extractor as default for the whole IDE. Beginning from PhpStorm 2020.1, you set the extractor for a single table. If you open a different table, the extractor defaults to CSV.
From the list of data extractors, select Configure CSV formats.
In the CSV Formats dialog, click the Add Format icon .
Specify a name of a new format (for example, Confluence Wiki Markup).
Define settings of the format: set separators for rows and headers, define text for NULL values, specify quotation. Click OK.
When the format is created, you can select it in the drop-down list near the Export Data icon ().
In the Project tool window ( ), navigate to .
Right-click the extractors node and select .
Type the filename (for example,
PHP: the name that is used in the extractor menu.
array: output of the extractor.
groovy: the extension of the script.
Type or paste the code of the extractor in a new file. You can use code of other extractors in the extractors folder to write your extractor. Also, you can try the following extractors:
TSV-Icelandic-Groovy.tsv.groovy on GitHub: copy tab-separated query results and to paste them to Excel as comma-separated.
Dbunit Dataset Export in Groovy on GitHub: an extractor for Dbunit export.
PHP-Array.groovy: an extractor to PHP array.
Select the extractor from the list of extractors.
Consider the following example of adding the PHP-array extractor in DataGrip.
