Documentation gap: the stand-alone sqlar README doesn't mention any deletion capability. You have to read the source to discover the existence of the -d option.

I am using SQLite DB with .Net Core.
I would like to keep the DB created outside the application context @ c: drive so that multiple process can access it .
Able to create the connection and get connection object but unable to open connection. I tried read/write access to that drive.

please help

You seem to be correct there isn't a command to remove a file from the archive, but can use the SQL DELETE command to delete files from an archive, by typing a SQL command at the sqlite> prompt, such as: delete from sqlar where name='db.sqlar';

05:59 Post: How to insert TEXT data from SQL server to SQLite with SQLite ODBC Driver artifact: fcd13b88f8 user: anonymous
Greetings, I didn't manage to find same problem here on any other platform, so'll try luck and ask here :). I'm struggling with inserting text data FROM SQL server TO SQLite. The SQLite is as linked server. I'm using SQLite ODBC Driver from Mr. Werner. 
When I try to insert float/int there is no problem, but when it comes to inserting str/datetime to target column thats type is text I ran into error "Das abfragebasierte Einfügen oder Aktualisieren von BLOB-Werten wird nicht unterstützt".

From what I've understood for some reason the query has the feeling that sqlite target columns data type is BLOB, which is not. 

I've also tried cast & convert data type inside query on various sql server text types.

Only thing that worked but not perfectly, is create blob col in sqlite table & transform inside query to nvarbinary(max) and then insert text data. 

Any help is appreciated.

The page size being fixed while in WAL mode is a perfectly reasonable limitation. However, I don't see how those reasons apply to VACUUM INTO, which creates a new database without changing the original one.

15:03 Post: database creation getting hung up on a NFS mount path artifact: 218bf4ac5d user: anonymous

I am trying to create create database on a NFS mount point I create a db connection using sqlite3_open call.. As per the documentation the default VFS using on unix OS is 'unix.'
The execution gets stuck at the function sqlite3_exec

Now, if I register any other VFS like unix-excl using sqlite3_open_v2 call.. then it works fine.

The NFS s/c version used is 3.

I have few questions around this:

  • Why does VFS 'unix' not work for NFS? Is it version dependent?
  • The process just gets hung up on the sqlite3_exec. Can there be a way to exit from this situation?
18:17 Reply: Get SQLITE_PROTOCOL error when opening database artifact: 4bda3c9b0e user: anonymous

I am doing nothing special for the compilation. I just added the 3 files that were the wrapper for SQLite to my project as normal. Then I added winsqlite3.dll and .lib files to the project also. Everything compiles with no errors. I did not no about the MACRO, so I will check that out. While waiting for an answer I was messing around with the project and I did something (don't know what) but now the open function works. I can only guess that I fixed the project scope with the database file because that was the only thing I was changing. Strange!!! I am happy now.

18:06 Reply: Get SQLITE_PROTOCOL error when opening database artifact: 2cece78f9d user: anonymous

The file is in my home folder for the project hence the lack of any path on the file. SQLite says the full path is not necessary so I did not use it. The reason I dumped the code that it was not working. I have used the wrapper previously in another project that was written in MFC and it worked flawlessly. I always try to use things that work, but in this case I was following the example on sqlite.org first, and it did not work. I moved on because this has been so frustratingly hard to get to work.

16:37 Reply: Get SQLITE_PROTOCOL error when opening database artifact: 61d6aa44a2 user: anonymous

Update - I dumped all the code above and tried a different scheme. I used a wrapper for SQLite3 from https://github.com/neosmart/CppSQLite and used the same .lib and .dll files. Everything compiles and I get a different error, which is 14 or SQLITE_CANTOPEN. I suspected that was the problem. Why it was one off? Here is the code.

CppSQLite3DB m_dB; const char* m_szFile = "db.sqlite3"; const char* m_szFilesTable = "Files";

void UI_Database::InitializeDatabase(void) { bool fileTableExists = false; const char* ver; int verNumb = 0;

ver = CppSQLite3DB::SQLiteHeaderVersion();
ver = CppSQLite3DB::SQLiteLibraryVersion();
verNumb = CppSQLite3DB::SQLiteLibraryVersionNumber();

    // Open the database.

    // Check if database contains the 'Files' table.
    fileTableExists = m_dB.tableExists(m_szFilesTable);

    if (fileTableExists == false)
catch (CppSQLite3Exception& e)
    // Show the exception.
    ver = e.errorMessage();


Everything works except for getting an exception when open on the database is called. It returns SQLITE_CANTOPEN. I think it is getting blocked from opening by WinRT, but I don't know how to give it access. I just want to confirm my suspicions. Thanks.

I did so and can read text/words does make sense, but there was no "SQLite format 3" text on the head...

Does this mean that 1) the db is an sqlite db (why could I not get any .table nor .schema? it says file is not a database of it is encrypted 2) the db is not an sqlite db but its encoding could be read with "strings myfile.db | head"?

I also run "strings myfile.db more" and seen
  1. What would you recommend me to get the schema of this db and manage to read it?
  2. Can I dump somehow these strings to a kind of csv textfile?

18:48 Post: Documentation bug regarding max SQL length artifact: ba0e448646 user: anonymous

Hi, We recently saw SQLite error code regarding queries being too large. On checking the error code page, the docs mention limit as 1,000,000 (https://www.sqlite.org/rescode.html#toobig)

However the actual limit is 1,000,000,000 as documented here: https://www.sqlite.org/limits.html#max_sql_length, and in the code


** The maximum length of a single SQL statement in bytes.
** It used to be the case that setting this value to zero would
** turn the limit off.  That is no longer true.  It is not possible
** to turn this limit off.
# define SQLITE_MAX_SQL_LENGTH 1000000000

Wanted to confirm that this indeed is just a documentation issue, and I'm not misreading the default value.

12:38 Post: Inconsistency in BETWEEN Query artifact: e7c9c8b21b user: anonymous
Hello I am working on an Android SQLite project and can not find a way to get right value, The program takes an input value from the user and searches it in the database, I want to do a query like; if the input value is 3; look through the col_a and col_b if the value is between col_a and col_b prints the col_c value "AA" and col_d value "BB". Like col_a < 3 <col_b prints AA, BB. If col_a < 7 < col_b prints CC, DD.

I am doing a query with the "BETWEEN" but it returns an inconsistent value.

My Table;
ID  |        col_a        |        col_b        |  col_c  |  col_d 
1   |    4011110000000    |    4011119999999    |   AA    |   BB   
2   |    4022220000000    |    4022229999999    |   CC    |   DD    

My Query;
SELECT * FROM my_table WHERE 401111000001 BETWEEN col_a AND col_b

You can see the values in column col_a and col_b is 13 digits long and the query value is 12 digits long. The query returns the item with the ID:1. If I put a 13 digits long value(4011110000001) it also returns the row with ID:1. The problem is 12 digits long value is not in between among the values to be checked.

Android Java Code;
String sql = "SELECT * FROM my_table WHERE ? BETWEEN col_a  AND col_b";
Cursor cursor = db.rawQuery(sql, new String[] {String.valueOf(x)});

if (cursor.moveToNext()) {
    String element1 = cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndexOrThrow("col_c"));
    String element2 = cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndexOrThrow("col_d"));
    String element3 = cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndexOrThrow("ID"));
    Log.d(""," " +element1);
    Log.d(""," " +element2);
    Log.d(""," " +element3);

So if I have an index on type and I do WHERE type!=1 the index can help me to skip 25% of records, is it correct? Otherwise how can I rewrite my query to benefit from index?

15:38 Reply: sqlite3_busy_handler missing artifact: e5242272b8 user: anonymous

I cannot be sure if all data readers and commands were manually disposed but I suspect so (it's been already some years since I debugged this). What I do know, as I have a mechanism in place to track of all open connections, is that when this problem appeared all opened connections had already been properly closed.

I believe that it is part of the contract of IDbConnection.Close() that it should actually close the connection (when no pooling is active) and if some command or reader tries to execute it should fail. So the native connection staying open after being explicitly closed seems to me an undesirable behavior.

Thank you for formally exposing the busy handler so that I can finally get rid of all the reflection stuff I had to use.

I assume narg stands for the number of arguments; if so, how do I interpret -1?

How do I interpret (or what are the meanings of):

  • type (s = ? w = ?)
  • flags

Hi all, I tried to run sqldiff.exe on a Windows 10 x 64 bits and does not start... I guess there should be a 64 bit version as the 32 bits one is not compatible, but I cannot find it anywhere. Can anybody help me finding it? Thanks,

You can do it in one step with VACUUM INTO.

did you define the column types when you defined the table?

The tables are defined with types for each column; I queried sqlite3_column_type() inside a user-defined function. I could equally query the column type inside a callback function ... but is is not reliable to assume the column type from the current row ... as you say, note that SQLite does not enforce values to be the same type as a column definition.
