SQLite Expert Professional is intended for the creation, maintenance, management and organization of SQLite databases. The tool’s interface is quite intuitive considering the complexities of designing a database. Needless to say, you need at least basic knowledge in the field to use this program successfully. Thankfully, there is a sample database for you to have a clearer idea of how to proceed.

One of the characteristics of this product is that it lets you connect to various databases simultaneously. For this purpose, there is a panel on the left where databases and their tables are arranged as a tree. This facilitates making the necessary changes, such as restructuring fields, foreign keys, indexes, unique and check constraints as well as triggers. It also helps to compare databases to spot the differences.

It is great news that you can use clipboard operations to copy and paste records and tables from one database into another. And simpler than that, you can drag and drop a table to the new location.

SQLite Expert Professional can help preserve the integrity of the data. In this regard, it is excellent that it can repair damaged databases. What is more, it allows performing transactions with rollback and atomic commit, which means that your database can easily be recovered after a sudden system failure. Besides, it also supports creating backups of your databases on the cloud.

Queries are an important part of extracting the desired information from a database. Luckily, the tool allows automatically generating code using the Visual SQL Query Builder. However, you can still write your own code using the SQL editor, which supports syntax highlighting and code completion.

In addition, there is the Data Transfer Wizard to import and export data. In this respect, the tool can import data from various sources, including ADO data source, SQL script, SQLite, CSV and TSV. Likewise, it supports exporting in a wide array of formats, such as Excel, XML, JSON, HTML, CSV, TSV, ADO data sources, SQL script and SQLite databases.

To conclude, it is practically impossible to describe here the whole set of features available from SQLite Expert Professional, so, if you are interested in knowing more about it, you can read its excellent help documentation. Finally, you should know that the product is available in two editions: Personal and Professional. While the Personal edition is absolutely free, it does not support as many features as the paid edition. Therefore, it is a good idea to carefully consider what each of them has to offer before making a decision.
