SQLiteEx - Example Syntax Error?

Recommended Posts


Started messing around with SQLiteEx to see about using for a project I have in mind.

Downloaded and installed SQLiteEx, including the example script, but I get a syntax error upon execution...

so I started breaking down the SQL statement by commenting out parts of it and adding it back in a little at a time.

;Examples of work with SQLiteEx - simple SQLite interface for AutoIt

#Include 'SQLiteEx.au3'

$bVerbose = TRUE

;----------------------FIRST DATABASE--------------------------------------------------------------
$sDB_Earth          = 'earth_2012'
$sTableCountries    = 'countries'

$sSQL =  "CREATE TABLE " & $sTableCountries & " (country text, internet_users integer, population integer);" & @CR
$sSQL &= "INSERT INTO " & $sTableCountries & " (country, internet_users, population) VALUES " & @CR
$sSQL &= "('Brazil',        99357737,   193946886)," & @CR
$sSQL &= "('China',         568192066,  1343239923)"    & @CR
;$sSQL &= "('India',            151598994,  1205073612),"   & @CR
;$sSQL &= "('Japan',            100684474,  127368088),"    & @CR
;$sSQL &= "('Russia',       75926004,   142517670),"    & @CR
;$sSQL &= "('United States',    254295536,  313847465),"    & @CR
;$sSQL &= "('You are here', 2405518376, 7017846922)"    & @CR

Say('Deleting previous ' & $sDB_Earth & ' database: ' & _SQLiteEx_DropDatabase($sDB_Earth))

Say('Opening database ' & $sDB_Earth & ' and executing ' & $sSQL & ' Results: ' & _SQLiteEx_Open($sDB_Earth, $sSQL))

Creating the Table and inserting the values for one record worked w/o problem, but when I attempt to include the values for a second record, I get the syntax error message.  See attached screen shot of error.

I double checked the syntax and all looks good to me.  Does anyone have any ideas?




And the sign said 'Long Hairded Creepy People Need Not Apply' ... So I stuffed my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why?

You'd better use the standard SQLite UDF.

Now "chained" inserts are only recently accepted by SQLite. Please download the most recent stable release and ascertain you use it over older version(s).
