SQLite to SQL Server conversion and synchronization.

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 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 SQLite source database.

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

Connect to SQLite source database from DBConvert

2. Connect to SQL Server destination database.

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

Connect to SQL Server 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 SQL Server 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 SQLite database to the closest equivalent of the target SQL Server 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 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, 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:

Requirements

  • 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)
  • Necessary privileges to write into network shared folder (LAN or VPN) where destination database SQLite resides
