Problem with single quotes Swift/MacOS
From <u>[Declared Datatype Of A Query Result](https://sqlite.org/c3ref/column_decltype.html)</u>: "If the Nth column of the result set is an expression or subquery, then a NULL pointer is returned."

If the prepare succeeded, you got a sqlite3_stmt object back.

I don't know what to make of those assertions. I can only guess what "command without single quotes" means, and whether your "works fine" resembles mine is similarly uncertain. I'm not sure what you mean by "Bind", but binding parameter values within prepared SQL statements is certainly allowed outside of WHERE clauses.
