Complex view breaking SQLite on Android < v11

Complex view breaking SQLite on Android < v11

Hello, this is strange one.

Using SQlite3 3.35 on my pc, I create a database, with three tables and two views. Then, I copy it over to my phone (Android 11) and open it with aSQLiteManager to test: everything works great including both views.

I copy the exact same database file to an Android 10 or below phone. When I try to open it with aSQLiteManager, it says "Race.db is not a database" and then overwrites it with a blank database. I tried other SQLite database utilities with the same result. They all work OK with my database on Android 11 but not on phones running previous versions.

It really looks like the view "r1_Trois" is the cause of the problem. If I re-create the database without that view, the new database can be opened without any issues on all Android versions and the other view is working just fine.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Here's the SQl code:


CREATE TABLE Destinataire);

CREATE TABLE Coureurs, [Nom] NVARCHAR(25), [Epreuve] NVARCHAR(10), [Sexe] NVARCHAR(1), [TempsPassage] DATETIME, [Statut] NVARCHAR(9));

CREATE VIEW r1_Trois AS SELECT Epreuve, rn AS "#", Sexe as "S", Dossard AS "3_Premiers", STRFTIME('%H:%M %d',TempsPassage) AS "Temps/Jour" FROM (SELECT *, ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY Epreuve, Sexe ORDER BY TempsPassage) rn FROM Coureurs WHERE TempsPassage <> '' AND Statut IS "En_Course") WHERE rn <= 3 ORDER BY SUBSTR(Epreuve, 5) + 0 DESC, Sexe DESC, rn ASC;

CREATE VIEW r2_DNFs AS SELECT Epreuve, Dossard as "Liste_DNFs", STRFTIME('%H:%M %d',TempsPassage) AS "Temps/jour" FROM Coureurs WHERE TempsPassage <> '' AND Statut is "DNF" ORDER BY SUBSTR(Epreuve, 5) + 0 DESC, Dossard;

Your view uses a window function `OVER (PARTITION BY', which may not be supported by the SQLite version on Android < v11, or by aSQLiteManager on those versions.

Use SELECT sqlite_version() to find out what version your target Android version has installed, and consult the release history to find out if that version is supposed to support window functions.

Thank you so much for the explanation.

Is there any way that this view could be simplified to avoid using the window function?

I don't mind if I have to do separate views by distance if needed. I was handled over this code and my knowledge of SQLite is very limited. The view is giving the top three racers (their bib no.) by time, for men and women, and for each of the races.

Got an amazing answer from @forpas on StackOverflow using a correlated subquery instead of the window function. The View now works without a glitch on Android7, 10 and 11 !

Thanks for letting us know you were able to solve it.

I assume you mean the following pages:
