I want to save the result of a psql query as an Excel file.
ie, I have a table named company with 5 column. I want to execute the query,
SELECT column_1, column_2, FROM company;
And I just want to save the result of this query as a Excel file. Is it possible in PostgreSQL? If yes then please explain it.
You could use csv to save your data and open/work with them in Excel. Syntax would be something like:
Copy (SELECT column_1, column_2, FROM company; ) To '/tmp/test.csv' With CSV;
This query would run on server. You could also make usage of
\query which is running on your client and saving the data locally. See also another SE question
