SQL Server to SQLite conversion and synchronization.

Our DBConvert/ DBSync software enable efficient to-way migration and synchronization of databases, allowing for the conversion and synchronization of Microsoft SQL Server to SQLite and vice versa.

Additionally, besides generic SQL Server support the following MS SQL Server types are supported :

  • Windows Azure SQL
  • Amazon RDS | Aurora
  • Google Cloud SQL

Several Reasons to convert data from SQL Server to SQLite?

  • Cost: SQLite is a free, open-source database management system, while SQL Server is a commercial product that requires a license.
  • Ease of deployment: SQLite databases are self-contained and can be easily distributed with an application, whereas SQL Server requires a separate installation and setup.
  • Platform compatibility: SQLite can be used on a variety of platforms, including Windows, macOS, and Linux, whereas SQL Server is primarily used on Windows.
  • Resource usage: SQLite is a lightweight database system that requires minimal resources, making it well-suited for embedded systems or mobile devices. SQL Server, on the other hand, requires more resources and is better suited for enterprise-level applications.

Why synchronize data between SQL Server and SQLite?

  • Data portability: Synchronizing data between the two systems allows for the data to be easily moved or shared between different environments or platforms.
  • Backup and disaster recovery: Synchronizing data between MS SQL Server and SQLite can be used as a way to create backups of the data or to recover from a disaster.
  • Improved scalability: Synchronizing data between MS SQL Server and SQLite can be used to improve scalability by allowing for the distribution of data across different systems.
  • Improved performance: Synchronizing data between MS SQL Server and SQLite can be used to improve performance by allowing for the distribution of data across different systems.
  • Integration with other systems: Synchronizing data between MS SQL Server and SQLite can be used to integrate data with other systems that support only SQLite.
  • Development and testing: Synchronizing data between MS SQL Server and SQLite can be used for development and testing, allowing developers to work on a SQLite database and then synchronize it with the production MS SQL Server database.

Our software offers a comprehensive set of features that make it the ideal solution for those looking for a fast, convenient, and dependable way to synchronize and transfer MySQL data to a SQLite file. By utilizing our tools, users will find that the process of converting and synchronizing databases is even more streamlined and straightforward.

Using SQL Server to SQLite conversion and synchronization tools.

When launching the DBConvert or DBSync application in GUI mode, it seamlessly guides you through the steps to initiate database migration or synchronization:

1. Connect to SQL Server source database.

Specify the username/password and host/port parameters if your source database requires login credentials.

Connect to SQL Server source database from DBConvert

2. Connect to SQLite destination database.

Specify parameters for the destination database similar to the source, defining connection settings and username/password pairs.

Connect to SQLite target database from DBConvert

NOTE #1: Each DBConvert or DBSync tool's name comprises two different databases, enabling any specified database to operate as the source or destination. Furthermore, the same type of database can function as both the source and destination.

NOTE #2: Connections to cloud databases (e.g., Amazon RDS, Google Cloud, or Azure SQL) aren't explicitly specified in the user interface but use the same settings as traditional on-premises databases.

NOTE #3: Connections to source and target databases remain active until you close the DBConvert/DBSync application or reopen new connections.

Refer to our documentation for specific source/ destination configurations for different databases.

3. Configure database migration options.

Specify the tables, fields, indices, and views you want to transfer to the SQLite destination database by checking/unchecking the corresponding boxes.

Customize general database/ tables settings. Or configure specific table , field, index object individually when migrating data.

Explore our articles in the user's manual about Configuring database migration options. for detailed information.

The screenshot below summarizes the general features available in DBConvert software.

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

The database enforces certain relations on the data, and on the customization step, an intelligent error checker verifies all possible data integrity and referential integrity issues. It highlights any problems before migration starts.

By default, DBConvert attempts to automatically map the database types of the source SQL Server database to the closest equivalent of the target SQLite database types. However, you can manually change the data types for the entire database globally using the "Global mapping" or individually for each field.

Explore the Intelligent error checker for more information. on errors and warnings

5. Execution. The final stage of data migration.

Initiate the conversion or synchronization process after configuring source and destination databases in the previous steps.

Click the "Commit" button to start conversion. Here, you can also monitor the migration/synchronization process.

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

Command line mode

Pass previously saved sessions as parameters to the Command-Line DBConvert Client. A session retains SQL Server source and SQLite target database connection settings with other specified options.


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

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

Built-in scheduler.

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

Supported OS:


  • 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)
