DBeaver: How to export a result without running 2 queries

I have a query that takes 3-5 minutes to run, so I’d rather not run the query once to generate the result set, and then a second time to generate the exported .csv file. Is there any way to only run the query once in DBeaver? Bonus if I get to visualize the output in DBeaver and then generate the .csv after without rerunning the query.


You can’t. Right now if you want to export the result set to a .csv, you need to rerun the query. However, a nice workaround is to first run the query on a subset (time, users, LIMIT, etc.) and once it’s good, you can directly export results to a .csv by doing the following in the editor:

right click > Execute > Export From Query.
