Convert SQLite to SQL Server.

Our DBConvert/ DBSync for SQLite and Microsoft SQL Server migration software supports data synchronizations and conversions from SQLite to MS SQL Server and Windows Azure SQL databases.

One of the main benefits of the DBConvert tool is the range of effective features that helps you to transfer all database objects together or each individually, skipping unnecessary tables, fields, indexes, foreign keys and constrains. You can change data types for various fields, rename each database element and many other options that assist you in customizing your target database easily.

The DBConvert application is able to create dumps for roundabout data uploading on MS SQL, thus enabling you to overcome any server access restrictions.

DBSync for SQLite and MS SQL supports two-way synchronizations between SQLite and MS SQL Server/ Windows Azure SQL databases, allowing you to have correct data replications in both target and source.

Insert, update and drop synchronization types together help you through the entire synchronization process and helps you keep dispersed databases reconciled.

Product comes both with a fast and intuitive GUI interface and powerful command line support to speed up conversions by reusing any previously saved session.

You can automate tasks export with the built-in scheduler which runs as a service.

Using SQLite to SQL Server 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 SQLite source database.

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

Connect to SQLite source database from DBConvert

2. Connect to SQL Server 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 SQL Server 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:

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

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 SQL Server 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 SQLite to SQL Server.

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 SQLite database to the closest equivalent of the target SQL Server 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 SQLite to SQL Server

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.

Command line mode

Previously saved sessions can be passed as parameters to Command-Line DBConvert Client. A session keeps SQLite source and SQL Server 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.

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)
