Quotes in query SQLite...

15 posts in this topic

Hi guys! How are you? Hope you're fine :)
I'm trying to insert a text that contains quotes in a SQLite database, and I don't know how to do.
I tried with:

Local $sString = "1P6AV2104'0HA04'0AA0"
StringReplace($sString, "'", "''")

but I didn't managed to, obtaining this error:

--> Error:    unrecognized token: "0HA04"

How can I manage to solve this problem? Thanks :)

You really should specify datatypes in the create table statement, else you may have issues.

The function _SQLite_FastEscape() deals with single quote(s) in text fields.

Don't wrap numeric fields inside single quotes.

Use a transaction to group your inserts.

Could you please post an example of what you said? Thanks and have a good day :)

EDIT:

I would like to understand your phrase too:

"Use a transaction to group your inserts."

I am writing from my smartphone, so, sorry If I didn't quote you in right way :) Thanks :)

Hey! It works :) Thanks :)

ID it's not numeric, so I processed it as text...
COSTO would be real, but when I do the "INSERT", an error appears in corrispondence of the field "COSTO"... So I am trrating it as text...
Just to know... Even when I do some UPDATE I have to do proceed with "_SQLite_FastEscape()" function? A big thank you :D

EDIT:

Costo is effectively REAL, because it's like € xx,xx...
So, I would declare it as REAL and don't do pass it to the _SQLite_FastEscape() function, am I right?
If you could me explain these things, I'd be very happy and, if you need some example of what I'm meaning, just ask :)

Again thanks :D

A real for a computer is of the form 9999.9999 with no € sign and a dot as decimal point, not a comma. You can reformat the cost value so that is fits what is expected for a real. Integers and reals don't need escaping, clrealy, since they can't contain single quotes.

Update needs escaping text like insert and for the very same reason.

Anyway you may still want to reconsider your table design to avoid maintaining separate tables for different manufacturers/suppliers (if those tables have the same fields). IIRC you mentionned Siemens and Rockwell or something. Do those tables have the same structure?

Good morning @jchd:)
For the first question, I should replace the € with "", and, " , " with "."... Then, I could proceed with the "REAL" format for the field COSTO.
Fot the second question, I answer "Yes, all 4 tables ( are 4, not 2 as I, maybe, didn't explain in the right way ), have the same format... But, I preferred to keep them separate because, If I have to make a query, the SQLite has not to query a big table, but just the needed one. If I'm making some mistakes ( as I did, because I studied SQL few years ago ), please tell me :)
Now I'm making changes about the INSERT and the UPDATE. Only these 2 "operations" would have the _SQLite_FastEscape() function, am I right?
Thanks for your time :) I rellay appreciate it :)
Have a wonderful day!
Francesco :D

For the costo field: also remove whitespaces.

Querying one "big" table is almost always preferable to have several identical tables. There are some reasons for that:

  • First, SQLite (and RDBMS in general) are very efficient at manipulating huge amounts of data. SQLite routinely manages multi-terabytes tables with billions rows, provided correct design of the schema.
  • Second, you don't have to write and manage separate code to access TableA, TableB, TableC, ... Add a discriminating column (e.g. "Brand") where you put 'Siemens', 'Rockwell', ...(*) and use a WHERE clause to specify which brand you're interessed in.
  • Third, it's better for efficiency of the caches.

(*) Better yet: set the column "Brand" to refer to a Brands table, using a foreign key.

You need to escape any text literal which may contain one or more single quote. This includes statements like:

select colA, colB, colC from mytable where colA like _SQLiteFastEscape($sometext) ...

Hey @jchd!
You are a very nice person :)
No one here helped me so much, and, since you starded doing that, I'm learning a lot of things...
Now, I should change my code ( 1783 rows :frantics: ) about what you were saying...
I know I can do it :D
Quick question... I don't remember how FK works...
Could you explain me something about it or give to me ( I am not lazy looking for foreign key on Google, but maybe you have a more direct explanation that I could understand better than something on Google :) ) a reference :)
Thanks :D 

EDIT:

By the way, I don't know if I'll do this new table, because I can't manage one brand with barcodes...
If I add a new product, I do it by barcode... So, If the last brand has not a barcode, and atm, I can't generate it, I can't do what you suggested ( would be AMAZING! )... Do you have any idea? Or, for now, I could manage the db as I am doing, without creating a new table with all brands? Thanks :D

A foreign key in SQL is a reference (via a unique identifier, often an integer) from a child table to a parent table. Foreign keys are widely used to avoid duplication of data (like in your case, to avoid repeating for every Siemens item that its brand is 'Siemens') and also to link together entities in different semantic spaces.

Duplicating data is problematic: not only that eats up storage and cache space pointlessly but also because it's a window wide open to DB inconsistancies. For instance, it too easy to misspell/mistype 'Siemens' as 'Seimens'.

Now imagine you have a stock of items (you seem to have that) which you sell. Let's skip a number of details. At some point you're going to have to process orders and produce detailled invoices. At this point, what do you think is more robust, more efficient and more compact?

Create invoices containing the full data of the client, the delivery point and all the items sold stated in full,
OR
Create invoices containing references to the client, the delivery point and sold items.

Obviously, the second paradigm is better. You achieve that by using, in the invoices table, foreign keys (= FK = reference) to the client entry in the client table, also FK to the delivery point in the corresponding table and also FK to item in the stock table for each sold item in the invoice.

For a complete documentation about FK under SQLite, turn to https://www.sqlite.org/foreignkeys.html

Thanks for your explanation, @jchd.
But, how would I apply your example to my script? Should I create a table "Brand", and then?

Most probably yes. DB design obeys both rules ("normalizations", to apply reasonnably) and some white magic. Context & requirements & experience & common sense are the guides.

      Good evening guys
      I am working on a little project, in which I have to retrieve 8000+ rows of data from a table, from a SQLite database, to populate a combobox 
      This is what I tried 'til now, but it still takes about 12 seconds to populate the combobox.
      _SQLite_Exec($objDatabase, "BEGIN TRANSACTION;") If _SQLite_GetTable($objDatabase, "SELECT DISTINCT Comune FROM LISTA_COMUNI;", $arrRisultatoQuery, $intRighe, $intColonne) = $SQLITE_OK Then For $i = 2 To UBound($arrRisultatoQuery) - 1 If $i < UBound($arrRisultatoQuery) - 1 Then GUICtrlSetData($cbo_ComuneNascita, $arrRisultatoQuery[$i] & "|") Else GUICtrlSetData($cbo_ComuneNascita, $arrRisultatoQuery[$i]) EndIf Next _SQLite_Exec($objDatabase, "COMMIT;") Are there any other solution to retrieve 8000+ records from a SQLite database?

      Good morning community!
      I am working on a script which read from a text file ( .txt ) and should import all the content in a SQLite3 DB, in order to execute some queries that should be difficult to execute on a text file.
      So, I was looking for something very very fast, because the file could be very large ( I don't know exaclty how much can became big, but I know a lot of rows, it's a log file ... )
      I found the "Import method", but I don't know If I can implement it in a query ( @jchd, it's your turn!  )
      Do you know some methods that I can implement in my script to have a very very fast import of thousands and thousands rows in a SQLite3 DB?
      Thanks a lot

      Good evening everyone
      I'm working on this little project for a week, and, what I'm trying to do could be useful for many users as well...
      I'm trying to do a "Report Generator", which reads the data that have to report from a text file (.txt) formatted with this pattern;
      Data1;Data2;Data3;Data4;Data5;;

      YES, there are 2 semi-colon at the end of the line.

      In detail, Data1 is a date/time stamp with this format: YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS ;

      When the script starts, the user is prompted to choose 2 dates which I'll call as:
      Report_Date_Start; Report_Date_Start. So, the report, should cover all dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End.

      And, already at this point, I don't know how to do the query... How can I say to the script:
      SELECT * FROM (.txt) WHERE Data1 BETWEEN Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End; ?

      I thought that I could do a _DateDiff, but if the difference between the two dates is months and not days, how can I do the trick?
      Should I make a Switch...Case with the _DateDiff() and see then calculate all the dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End... But then, how can I compare the dates in the file with all the dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End? I'm going crazy, I know...

      I've already made a "Export Tool", which exports the content of the .txt file in a .db, managed with SQLite... I mean, there I could easily do a query like I did above the thread, but, this "export", for 1080 rows, takes 28 seconds to be done. And, 1080 rows are daily rows that are added every day in the .txt file, so, in a week, the file could be easily 7000+ rows, which means that the "export" would take 3 minutes to be done... And we can go over and over...
      I'll post just for be "complete" what I've done about the export, so, maybe, someone could say how to improve it in terms of efficency...
