[Solved] SQL/ite syntax error

Recommended Posts

Can anyone see what is wrong with this table creation string?

sql = create table default (Ref int, Time varchar (8), Prok varchar (40), Date varchar (30), Izzz int, Core double, Cold varchar (24), Hot varchar (24));

Also tried

sql = "create table default(Ref int, Time varchar(8), Proc varchar(40), Date varchar(30), Izzz int, Core double, Cold varchar(24), Hot varchar(24))";


sql = "create table default(Ref int,Time varchar(8),Proc varchar(40),Date varchar(30),Izzz int,Core double,Cold varchar(24),Hot varchar(24))";

And a number of of other variations including changing varchar to char.

Error says "syntax error near default"

You can always enclose a schema name (table, column, index, FK, whatever) inside double quotes, square brackets or backquotes (for compatibility with MySQL). This way you can have any Unicode character in the name including whitespaces (except control chars).

For instance (sorry for the French):

CREATE TABLE "Téléfuté" (
  "Pays" CHAR, 
  "Depuis ligne FT" CHAR, 
  "Ligne dégroupée" CHAR, 
  "TTC/h pleine" INT, 
  "TTC/h creuse" INT);

Also note that char, varchar, varchar(148), characteristic and any word containing "char" is equivalent to anything containing "text" and simply means "string affinity" for SQLite. You can store any SQLite type in any column regardless of its declared type.
