Migrating data from Excel(*.xls; *.xlsx) to SQLite

This guide will show you how to easily migrate data from MS Excel to SQLite through a few simple steps with ESF Database Migration Toolkit, simplifying the complex migration processes and saving you valuable time.

MS Excel vs. SQLite:

  • Microsoft Excel is a powerful spreadsheet software developed by Microsoft, widely used for organizing, analyzing, and visualizing data. It offers a wide range of features including calculation, graphing tools, pivot tables, and a macro programming language called Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). Excel enables users to create complex formulas, perform data analysis, and generate professional-looking charts and graphs. It is extensively utilized in various fields such as finance, accounting, engineering, and data analysis for its versatility and ease of use.
  • SQLite is a lightweight, serverless, self-contained, and open-source relational database management system. It's designed for embedded systems, mobile applications, and small to medium-sized database-driven websites. Unlike client-server database management systems, SQLite is serverless, meaning it doesn't require a separate server process to operate. Instead, it reads and writes directly to ordinary disk files. This makes it easy to set up and use, with no configuration or administration required. Despite its simplicity, SQLite supports most of the SQL standard and offers powerful features like ACID transactions, triggers, and support for indexes. It's widely used in mobile apps, desktop applications, and embedded systems due to its reliability, efficiency, and small footprint.
