Hi,

I am trying to implement a small sqLite db on my Android Phone. I have created the DB in sqLite Studio and populated it with some look-up tables.

I have added to the files tab. I am using DBUtils 2.02 to do the database copying, but I am getting the following error when I run it.

At the point of entering the File.Copy statement:

DB Utils CopyDBFromAssets:
Public Sub CopyDBFromAssets (FileName As String) As String
    Dim TargetDir As String = GetDBFolder
    If File.Exists(TargetDir, FileName) = False Then
        File.Copy(File.DirAssets, FileName, TargetDir, FileName)
    End If
    Return TargetDir
End Sub
The parameters are:
Parameters on entry to File Copy statement:
FileDirAssets     = "AssetsDir"
FileName         = "resistanceTrainer.sqlite3"
TargetDir        = "/storage/emulated/0/Android/data/b4a.rTrainer/files"
I used the pretty much the same code on an app I did back in 2017.

My phone is Build Version 6.0.1

API Level 23.

My phone has an SD card, but I would rather the DB be installed on the phone internal memory as the DB isn't going to be particularly large and will not have any critical data in it.

Best regards

Additional:

If I manually copy the db to:

"This PC\OPPO CPH1701\Internal storage\Android\data\b4a.rTrainer\files"

It works fine.

Best regards

Be careful, the names are case sensitive.

i.e. your error mentions 'resistancetrainer.sqlite3'

and your code has 'resistanceTrainer.sqlite3'
