SQLite Report Generator

For the SQLite developers...

New version 1.0.0.6

This is a Report Generator for SQLite Database.

post-42917-0-69157100-1365274531_thumb.j

The script supports up to two dynamic parameters per report, see the 'SQLite Reports.ini' file for more details. Single Date, period, string or number input are possible

I provide a full functional example using the Chinook Demo Database (http://chinookdatabase.codeplex.com), so everyone can test it. All required files are contained in the zip file. You can download the zipfile in the link hereunder.

I created 20 different reports, from which 4 are system reports and one is not linked to any table.

Features:

  • Up to 2 dynamic Parameters via input dialog box per report
  • Multi-line fields will display in a separate Window when you click on the cell containing multiline data (which cannot be displayed in a listview, if you click on a normal cell, the window will disapear
  • Double click on a row and a new Window will display the row vertically, usefull for rows with many columns.
  • Export to Excel
  • Fast, even with several thousands of rows (see Track report)
  • SQL that do not deliver data (no rows, no columns) will display a popup message instead (for example using the VACUUM command)
Of course you have to know SQL but I guess that everyone who programs SQLite will, right?

The SQL scripts are stored in the ini file, where 3 sections ‘Titles, SQL and Parameters’ contain all the elements required for a report.

For simplicity, I decided to store the SQL script in the ini file as a single line. The drawback is that the SQL is not easy to read or to maintain, but look at the example ' Invoice with details' where I join 8 tables. It's absolutely functional.

Read the [sql readme] section for more details about dynamic parameters. I think its usage is pretty obvious.

Know issues:

When compiled as 64bit, double click does not function in the main menu, I don't know why but I cannot get this fixed. If anyone knows, I would be pleased to get some help on this.

All the other functions, including the double click in the ListView do work. The script will use SQLite3.dll or SQLite3_x64.dll if compiled as a x64 App.

The script is a simplified version of my multi-platform Database Report Generator using Active-X DB connection. This SQLite report script (1600 lines) has very basic features compared to the latter (for example it fully integrates the ExcelChart UDF developed by water) but it has 13000 lines and is not provided has open source (sorry L, an early version was released on this forum in 2009 but for Oracle only)

I hope this one will be useful for you, I had some fun with it, took me 3 evenings to do the job.

Enjoy.

In case it helps.

The X64 problem is due to a bad definition of $tagNMHDR. It is always better to use the UDF ones.

More if you want to use the latest SQlite DLL you can just use a copy of SQLite.dll.au3 instead of including your own copy of those needed file.

it is also not needed in your code to startup/shutdown every time when you open/close.

I attached a working copy ilustrating what I mention.

Cheers

Hi jpm,

Thank you very much for finding what i did wrong. I greatly appreciate...

And you are right, I have been rather clumsy to put Startup and shutdown in a loop.

Concerning simply using _SQLite_Startup() versus _SQLite_Startup(@ScriptDir & "SQLite3.dll")

I think I did that because I once installed an SQLite app on a system without Autoit and without a connection to Internet and it didn't work (as no download was possible)

Thanks again

Cheers

Also specifying a local path to the DLL allows you to run a newer version of the library, or one with encryption or some fancy compile option (not recommended unless you know where you put your fingers).

Hi GreenCan!

wonderful script! I have no need for it at the moment but I'm sure I will remember this thread should the need arise ;)

A minor bug you need to fix.

In the OP you write "for example it fully integrates the ExcelChart UDF developed by water". This should be replaced by "for example it fully integrates the ExcelChart UDF developed by water and me". :D

You did a enormous part of the development work. Either by passing code to be included or by discussing design decisions with me!

So the ExcelChart UDF is the work of you and me!

Hi water,

Thank you, I appreciate very much that you like it.

ExcelChart: That is too much honor, you are a real gentleman :bye:. You don't database ExcelCharts yet? What about BLOB-ing them into SQLite? :)

Cheers, Greencan

Hi GreenCan,

I have to admit that I haven't used our ExcelChart for any productive work here.

How would you database ExcelCharts? Would this need the ExcelChart UDF to be modified?

Greetings

I was just thinking out loud, teasing you... You don't use Excel charts in a PP? :nuke:

The first issue is choosing which database for the storage. I use Oracle most of the time, but MS SQL and SyBase could be used too

SQLite is great for small projects. Don't understand me wrongly, SQLite is great but maybe not the most appropriate in a business environment. For my private playground however, SQLite is perfect and quite close to the syntax of Oracle SQL.

Making a multiDBplatform Chart storage is nearly impossible and way out o scope I guess.

So, what could be the benefits of storing charts in a Database?

- Speed

- Pro-activeness

- Management benefit

What to store?

- entire sheet or graph alone (bitmap or something else?)

How?

- Via a scheduled job, a kind of engine producing updated graphs in a loop?

I don't think that ExcelChart should be modified for this, but a shell application (the engine) would be required.

Worth more thinking about this? Is someone waiting for this?

Grtz

May I ask what are the expected benefits of storing charts? They would need recomputing after any change of the underlying data.

That reminds me of Spatialite: using SQLite as an efficient storage and a portable graphics engine for a astounding result.

One of the multiple strengths of SQLite is that it's so portable accross platforms. All that is required to have a cross platform charting layer is some kind of portable external viewer.

Now cross-engine and cross-platform is clearly close to unreachable.

jchd,

Yes, good question. Personally I think there is little benefit. But I surely would like experimenting with Binary Large Objects first (I didn't touch the topic yet), and make my conclusions afterwards ;)

PS. A bit off topic but FYI, Aqua Data Studio 13 now natively supports SQLite

SQLite blobs work like a charm. The good side is that you can reserve a maximum size for your blob and read/write it incrementally. Also since SQLite is dynamically typed, you can store Postscript text or JPG image inside any column regardless of its declared type. At retrieval, you can test for stored data type and handle it based on what it actually is.

A effective charting feature for SQLite could be "as simple as" an aggregate extension function producing e.g. postscript data for chart representation. It's very easy for instance to produce histograms in text form (strings of varying lengths of ******).

Aqua Data Studio isn't for a mere mortal like me. When/if I need fancy graphical representation from databases (my only choice is SQLite since it offers 500% of what I need) I'll use Wolfram Mathematica interface as I'm a paid user of Mathematica and its low- and high-level graphical possibilities are unbounded.

reybol7,

I understand that you are getting confused.

The export button does not create the csv file as such because the csv file is (already) created before the ListView gets populated.

I got the best performance by doing this, especially when your SQL results in a large amount of rows

1. Line 274: Run the SQL

2. Line 287-295: Create the csv file in @tempfolder using the ExportData() function

3. Line 319: Convert the csv file to array $aResult using ProgAndy's excellent _ParseCSV function

4. Line 333-348 Populate the Listview from Array $aResult

Consequently, the export button just moves the csv file to My Documents folder, opens Excel and does some basic formatting.


I found following function in my snippet archive, that might be of help to you. The function exports ListView data to a csv file.

The particularity of this export function is that it will export the Listview exactly how it is displayed, If you move a column, the export will also move the column, if you hide a column, the column will not be exported.

_ExportListView.au3

Dear GreenCan,

Many Thanks,

I'm getting this error:

Can't Load Database
C:\Reports\Chinook_Sqlite_AutoIncrementPKS.sqlite @extended 21

I have this file in the same folder (Chinook_Sqlite_AutoIncrementPKs.sqlite)

Best Regards,

Many Thanks shai,

Now is solved for me:

  1. i've looked in the forum for the error you mentioned, and found this code to check my sqlite3.dll file
  2. Got an error loading the sqlite3.dll library (perhaps because the file was from 2014)
  3. In the AutoIt Help, in the section about the funtion _SQLite_Startup: there's a link for downloading SQLite files
  4. Got the last available version (SQLite3_version.zip). unziped and changed the name to the same: sqlite3.dll

      ..let's say I store in a mysql column "[1,2,11,12,123]".
      How can I make s query to get all those rows that is 1, or is 12, etc ?
      I'm using  mysqlnd 5.0.11-dev - 20120503 
      Any advise on what technique I should use is welcomed
      Thanks
      PS: ..I'm adding a comma to each end, as in  [,1,2,11,12,123,] and will search with like %,12,% .
      Not pretty but I'm in a hurry and can't come up with a better solution =/

      I have been testing AutoIt 3.3.14.3 with SQLite, and the Help File examples.  The examples that I have tested are throwing errors or not doing anything.  I have sqlite3.dll, sqlite3_x64.dll, and sqlite3.exe in the directories with the testing script.  I am copying the examples directly from the help file into a test script for testing with no edits.  The _SQLite_GetTable2d example is returning an error ("Library used incorrectly") with each _SQLite_Exec command.  The _SQLite_FastEncode example returns an empty dialog box.  The _SQLite_Exec example only prints out the SQLite version, and nothing else in the SciTE console.  Currently, I'm still searching for what is causing this issue.  I'm on Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit.  Is anyone else having this issue?

      Greetings,
        I have SQLite setup within my AutoIT program...I'm trying to accomplish what should be a relatively simple task.  I want to be able to return an array of 'table' names for an established database...I believe this might be possible using the '_SQLite_SQLiteExe' command...since it seems to be able to access SQLite schemas...?  The ".tables" command is one of them...if I am not mistaken that command returns a list of all table names in the active database.
        I am attempting the following:
      #include <SQLite.au3> #include <SQLite.dll.au3> Global $hDb, $sIn, $sOut ... $sIn = ".tables" & @CRLF _SQLite_SQLiteExe($hDb, $sIn, $sOut) if @error == 0 Then ;Show Table (using SQLite3.dll) Else if @error == 2 Then ConsoleWrite("ERROR: Sqlite3.exe file not found" & @CRLF) Else ConsoleWrite("ERROR: @error=" & @error & " when calling _SQLite_SQLiteExe" & @CRLF) EndIf ;@error is "2"...OR NOT... EndIf ;@error is "0"...OR NOT... ...   The error being thrown is "ERROR: Sqlite3.exe file not found" ...
        Am I required to have the Sqlite3.exe installed in my directory (i.e. @ScriptsDir)...???  I do not have it in there at present because I did not believe it was necessary with the 'include' calls to "SQLite.au3" and "SQLite.dll.au3"...any advice appreciated.  Thanks in advance. 
      Regards

      Dear all,
      I already have a formula which will select doublicates, but sometimes there might be entries with additional information starting after "-", which I now want to trim away.
      Current formula is:
      Select DISTINCT a.title, a.oid, a.size, a.disk from DB a, DB b where (a.title like b.title and a.oid <> b.oid)" & $ActiveDisks_Filter & " AND (a.comment <> 'Delete' AND b.comment <> 'Delete') Order by a.title ASC, a.size DESC; testwise I want to add a simple solution like left, but afterwards I get an error but I do not know why.
      Select DISTINCT a.title, a.oid, a.size, a.disk from DB a, DB b where (left(a.title,15) like b.title and a.oid <> b.oid) Order by a.title ASC, a.size DESC; Error: near "(": syntax error: Finally I would like to insert intstr to search for "-" but currently I am not able to extend my current code =/
      Thanks a lot for your help.
      EDIT: hey, I managed it, left was not working also it was somehow shown that the tool knowed the comment. I did it now with substr+instr
      (substr(a.title, 1, instr(a.title, ' - '))

      I have code that does a WMI SQL query to find all defined printers, and I want to parse the returned object in several places.  However, after parsing it the first time, all other times fail to find any printer objects.
      Here is my test code:
      test() Func test() Local $oPrinters, $oPrinter, $err, $cnt, $oP, $query $query = "SELECT * FROM Win32_Printer" $oPrinters = doQuery($query) $err = @error LogMsg("+++: $err = " & $err & ", isObj($oPrinters) = " & IsObj($oPrinters)) If ($err == 0) Then LogMsg("FIRST LOOP") ; <=== FIRST LOOP $cnt = 0 $oP = $oPrinters LogMsg("+++: isObj($oP) = " & IsObj($oP)) For $oPrinter In $oP $cnt += 1 LogMsg("+++: isObj($oPrinter): " & IsObj($oPrinter) & ", $oPrinter.Name ==>" & $oPrinter.Name & "<==") Next LogMsg("+++: Found " & $cnt & " printers") LogMsg("SECOND LOOP") ; <== SECOND LOOP $cnt = 0 $oP = $oPrinters LogMsg("+++: isObj($oP) = " & IsObj($oP)) For $oPrinter In $oP $cnt += 1 LogMsg("+++: isObj($oPrinter): " & IsObj($oPrinter) & ", $oPrinter.Name ==>" & $oPrinter.Name & "<==") Next LogMsg("+++: Found " & $cnt & " printers") EndIf EndFunc ;==>test Func doQuery($sQuery, $lnum = @ScriptLineNumber) #forceref $lnum LogMsg("+++:" & $lnum & ": doQuery(" & '"' & $sQuery & '"' & ") entered") Local $oWMIService, $oResults, $errstr Local $wbemFlags = BitOR(0x20, 0x10) ; $wbemFlagReturnImmediately and wbemFlagForwardOnly $oWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & "localhost" & "\root\CIMV2") If (IsObj($oWMIService)) Then $oResults = $oWMIService.ExecQuery($sQuery, "WQL", $wbemFlags) If (IsObj($oResults)) Then LogMsg("+++: doQuery() returns @error = 0, Good: returning the object") Return (SetError(0, 0, $oResults)) ;;; Good: return the object Else $errstr = "" _ & "WMI Query failed." & @CRLF _ & "This is the query:" & @CRLF _ & " " & $sQuery LogMsg("+++: ====>" & $errstr & "<===") LogMsg("+++: doQuery() returns @error = 1") Return (SetError(1, 0, $errstr)) ; Error: Query faled EndIf Else $errstr = "" _ & "WMI Output" & @CRLF _ & "No WMI Objects Found for class: " & @CRLF _ & "Win32_PrinterDriver" & @CRLF _ & "using this query:" & @CRLF _ & " " & $sQuery LogMsg("+++: ====>" & $errstr & "<===") MsgBox(0, "ERROR", $errstr) ; Error: Cannot get $oWMIService object Exit (1) EndIf EndFunc ;==>doQuery Func LogMsg($msg, $lnum = @ScriptLineNumber) ConsoleWrite("+++:" & $lnum & ": " & $msg & @CRLF) EndFunc ;==>LogMsg Parsing the returned $oPrinters object shows 5 printers:
