DBeaver – Generating SQL from existing data


A good man reached out to me and prepped me about an upcoming Change Request.

The Change will be to add a lone record.


Here are a couple of options:

  1. Have him add it to Development / QA
    • I will use Linked Server to bring it over to Production
    • Create corresponding SQL Statements and apply generated SQL


Generated SQL



  1. Generate Data
    • Object
    • SQL Query
  2. Review Data Pane
  3. Select Data Rows
  4. Using menu, access “Generate SQL”\”Insert”


Generate Data

Depending on your needs, choose to generate data against the selected table or view. Or write a custom SQL.


If it will expedite your needs, please choose a table, view, function, or Stored Procedure.

When table or view, please right click on the selected object and choose “Edit data”.

SQL Query

Enter SQL Query

SQL Query – Text

select *
from WideWorldImportersDW.Dimension.City

SQL Query – Image


Execute Query.

Review Data Pane

Here is Generated data


Data Pane – Select Data Rows

In the Data Pane, please select the data rows.


Data Pane, Generate SQL/Insert

Right click on the selected records and choose to generate SQL/Insert.
