How to auto-generate the columns needed for insert command Follow
Say that I have a simple insert command:
INSERT INTO schema.table1
SELECT (a bunch of columns)
The problem is that I need to pick say 30 columns out of 50 columns of table2. How do I ask Datagrip to auto-generate these column names? I can even see the column names as a greyed hint but Datagrip refuses to "materialize" them.

More or less the same is true for the insert into statement. If I type " ( " after the tablename all the target columns gets inserted.
Does that help?
Hi Leon, thanks for the help, but I'm seeking to generate just the names of the columns in table1, not of table2. This gives me the full list of table2 but I only need the ones in table1.
Hi Markus, that is exactly what I explain in "More or less the same is true for the insert into statement. If I type " ( " after the tablename all the target columns gets inserted.".

Thanks Leon, it's not exactly what I want, but works to some extend. I only need to copy the line and paste it after SELECT. Thanks!
