Query Results

Results position

You can configure PopSQL to show results on the right (for rapid iteration), or on the bottom (for wide results). Look for the icons in the top right of the results tab.

When you position the results on the right side, results from multiple queries will stack up and you will be able to scroll through them. However, if the results are positioned on the bottom you will only see the results window for the query you are working in.

Results table

In the results table, there's a lot you can do:

  • Filter columns
  • Sort columns
  • Hide columns
  • Conditionally format columns
  • Expand a row to read it in a vertical format
  • Highlight cells to copy/paste into a spreadsheet

When applying filter or conditional formatting to a column in a dashboard, this is persisted across reloads and users.

Here's a video demonstrating what you can do with the table:

Conditional formatting

Conditional formatting helps you draw attention to certain values in your table. For example, you could highlight late values with the color red. For each conditional formatting you apply, it is broken up into 1 or more rules to apply to the column. For each rule, you choose a color and 1 or more conditions that trigger the rule. For example, in the video below, we apply a formatter with three rules each with one condition to color based on the text value. To do a numerical range, you would create a rule with a less than condition and a greater than condition.
