Convert SQL Server to SQLite.

Our DBConvert/ DBSync applications support high performance two-way database migrations and synchronizations that convert and sync your Microsoft SQL Server to SQLite and vice-versa. Windows Azure SQL databases can be set up as a source or destination of your migration process.

Feature list of our tools:

Today, transferring data to SQLite is becoming increasingly popular for many reasons. For example, if you need to store part of your data from a large volume into a small one, SQLite will meet that requirement very effectively.

SQLite is commonly used in business applications, mobile devices and iOS applications and is eminently suitable for small data management systems. It is more portables because is serverless, i.e., the data is stored in one database file, cross-platform and can be run on many platforms.

You can easily synchronize even existing remotely hosted MSSQL database to both local and remote SQLite databases using our software solutions. Our very intuitive interface and effective features certainly help you export data in little time.

Using SQL Server to SQLite conversion and synchronization tools.

When you start DBConvert or DBSync application in GUI mode it guides you through several steps to set up the database migration or synchronization:

1. Connect to SQL Server source database.

If a source database requires you to log in, you can specify a user name/ password and host/ port parameters.

Connect to SQL Server source database from DBConvert

2. Connect to SQLite destination database.

Specifying parameters for destination database looks like the same as for source. Usually, it consists of defining connection settings and username/password pairs.

Connect to SQLite target database from DBConvert

NOTE #1: Every DBConvert or DBSync tool has two different databases in its name. That means any specified database from a pair can be set up as a source or destination. Besides, the same type of database may be set up both as a source or destination.

As an example, here is the list of possible migration directions with on-premises databases:

  • SQL Server to SQLite
  • SQLite to SQL Server
  • SQL Server to SQL Server
  • SQLite to SQLite

NOTE #2: Don't be confused by the fact that connections to cloud databases like Amazon RDS, Microsoft Azure SQL, Google Cloud, and Heroku are not explicitly specified in the configuration of a source or destination in the DBConvert / DBSync interface. To connect to Cloud database instances, use the same settings as you do for traditional on-premises databases.

NOTE #3: Your connections to source and target databases stay active until you close DBConvert/ DBSync application or reopen new connections on "source" and "destination" steps.

Read more about the specific source/ destination configurations for different databases.

3. Custoimzation and configuration.

At the next step, you can specify precisely which tables, fields, indices, views you want to transfer to the SQLite destination database. Just check/ uncheck the box in front of each database object you want to convert.

Customize general database/ tables settings. Or set up a particular table , field, index individually when migrating data from SQL Server to SQLite.

Check out our articles about Custoimzation and configuration. for detailed information.

The screenshot below sums up general features available in DBConvert software solutions.

4. Detection of potential database migration issues. Errors and Warnings

The database typically constrains certain relations on the data that cannot be violated. On the customization step, a smart error checker verifies all possible Data integrity and Referential integrity issues and highlights them, if any, before performing a migration.

DBConvert software to default tries to automatically map database types from the source SQL Server database to the closest equivalent of the target SQLite database types. But you can manually change data types for the whole database globally with "Global mapping" or individually for each field.

Check out Smart error checker. Errors and Warnings for more information.

5. Execution. The final stage of data migration from SQL Server to SQLite

Once you configure source and destination databases for migration in the previous steps, you can start the actual conversion or synchronization process.

Click the "Commit" button to start conversion. Also, here, you can monitor the migtation/ synchronization process.

Optionally save connection settings and configuration parameters into the session file to schedule the launching of sync or migration jobs regularly.

Execution step of DBConvert products

Read more about execution stage available options.

Command line mode

Previously saved sessions can be passed as parameters to Command-Line DBConvert Client. A session keeps SQL Server source and SQLite target database connection settings with other specified options.

Example: C:\Program Files\DBConvert\sqlite2mssqlPro\sqlite2mssqlPro_Cons.exe /Session:"Session_Name"

NOTE: First, you have to run the software in GUI mode to create a session file with initial parameters.

Built-in scheduler.

Our applications come with a built-in scheduler to run database migration and sync jobs at specified times. Just set the scheduled date and time to execute job sessions automatically.

Highlights

Requirements

  • Necessary privileges to write into network shared folder (LAN or VPN) where destination database SQLite resides
  • Necessary privileges to write into database on the target SQL Server (this requirement is optional as there is an option to overcome the restrictions using dump file)
