Discussion

The excel_to_sqlite() function creates a SQLite database file from an Excel file. Each sheet in the Excel file is a table. If the first column in each sheet is numeric data and there are no duplicate values in the column data, that column is configured as the Primary Key for the table in the SQLite database.

Example

dim filename as c = "C:\temp\customers.xslx"
dim sqliteDbName as c = "customers.db"

if (excel_to_sqlite(filename, sqliteDbName)) then
    ' Success
else 
    ' Could not create SQLite Database
end if
