ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) is a standard that allows a database to communicate with other software applications. SQLite is a database engine that is widely used by many web applications such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Magento, PrestaShop, and so on. ODBC Driver for SQLite is a driver that allows you to connect SQLite databases from Microsoft Windows operating systems to ODBC-compliant applications such as Microsoft Excel and Access.
Introduction to Sqlite
SQLite is a fast, free, cross-platform, and embedded relational database engine. It is a mature product, having been in active development since 1997. It is a popular alternative to MySQL and PostgreSQL.
What Is ODBC Driver?
ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) drivers allow your application to access databases from other applications. You can use them in situations where you want to connect a database to another program. For example, you might have an Excel spreadsheet that contains data from a SQLite database. If you want to get the information into the spreadsheet, you need to make sure that you can connect the two programs.
ODBC Driver for SQLite by Devart
Devart SQLite Driver for ODBC v3.0 is a high-performance connectivity solution with enterprise-level features for accessing SQLite databases from ODBC-compliant reporting, analytics, BI, and ETL tools on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows, macOS, and Linux.
The ODBC driver included with SQLiteStudio for Mac fully supports the SQLite ODBC Driver API and enables easy and secure access to live SQLite data from anywhere.
The Benefits of ODBC
SQLite Database Encryption
SQLite supports SQL queries. To make this process as easy as possible, our ODBC driver for SQLite provides a powerful and customizable SQLite Database Encryption engine. SQLite 3.x now comes with built-in encryption in a form that is easy to use, and it’s open source under the GNU public license. With our driver the following algorithms will be able to encrypt your data: AES, Blowfish, TripleDES, Cast128, RC4.
Our ODBC driver works with all Microsoft SQL Server databases, no configuration required. Deploying is cheaper with silent installs, especially for larger organizations that have more than a hundred computers.
The driver supports the Microsoft Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) interface, its functions, and data types. This package enables any ODBC-compliant desktop or web application to connect to SQLite from Windows, MacOS, Linux, and other UNIX-like operating systems.
Advanced Data Conversion
We have implemented advanced Data Conversion mechanisms that enable you to map between any SQLite and ODBC data types.
It is true that with our driver you can batch update SQLite databases. However, it does not automatically perform the combined updates without further effort from you.
Our driver is compatible with SQLite version 3.0 or higher.
