Opening SQLite Databases

In Reportizer Opening Data Source dialog, there are several ways to open SQLite databases:

1. Opening through FD interface. Select FD interface, click SQLite, then fill all needed database parameters. You can also create a new SQLite database here.

Example of configuring a database connection:

(colored are required parameters)

Vendor libraryC:\sqlite\sqlite3.dll
Open modeReadWrite
SQL command separator;

2. Opening through ODBC DSN. Select ADO or BDE interface, then choose ODBC data source option and then select the needed ODBC DSN from the drop-down list. But first, you should create an ODBC DSN of the corresponding type using Windows administrative tools, and point it to the database.

3. Opening through connection string. Select ADO interface, then choose Connection string option and write a connection string. This way is very flexible and allows to specify many additional parameters in the connection string and override standard Reportizer connection behavior. It is recommended for advanced users. Here are basic connection strings (more examples and details can be found in the Internet):

Driver=SQLite3 ODBC Driver;Database=C:\MyData\My_db.db;   (SQLite3 ODBC Driver must be installed)

The bit-version (32 or 64) of SQLite vendor library must match the bit-version of the application.
When choosing the ODBC option, please make sure the corresponding ODBC driver installed and the bit-version of it matches the bit-version of the application (32 or 64).
If you are asked for database password, this means the application could not connect the database without password. So, you should either enter it or, if you are sure the database is not password protected, just click OK without entering user name and password to see the error message.
