After a SQLite database file has been successfully downloaded, it is to be copied to another directory and opened there.

Although download and transport to the other directory are successful, a crash occurs when the SQLite object is initialized:

For the directories "SharedFolder" from Erel's FileProvider class was used. Since the target file is stored without errors in the designated folder, I exclude a permission problem at the moment.

Can someone help me to get a grip on solving the sql open problem?

A small testproject is attached.

(just a thought)

Thanks, tried it - no joy.

I've uploaded a new testproject to #1.
  • Permissions integrated
  • Test File.Writestring: OK
  • Test FileCopy local db: OK
  • Test DownloadFile to local folder: OK

The db files were tested as errorfree with the newest version of SQLite Expert Professional

As someone who has been developing databases with SQLite for the Android platform for several years without any problems, I am faced with a puzzle...

Attached are the used database files if someone is interested

The error is in the sqlx.Initialise line.

wait for (ActivateDb(File.Combine(Starter.Folder_data1, strLocalDbFile))) complete(Success As Boolean)

B4X:
Sub ActivateDb(strDbFile As String) As ResumableSub
 
    If Not(File.Exists("", strDbFile)) Then   '@@@ OK here ...
        Return False
    End If
 
    If sqlx.IsInitialized Then sqlx.Close
 
    sqlx.Initialize(Starter.Folder_data1, strDbFile, False)  '@@@ then this ...
 
'.....................


Should be ...
B4X:
sqlx.Initialize("", strDbFile, False)

So, only the downloaded dba1.db raises "msg: file is encrypted or is not a database" although the structure is almost the same:

I hope it's a mistake due to a lack of knowledge. Because the function "Download and open database" is an essential part of the current project.

All I can offer is the db file is being downloaded and copied to the working folder OK.

The call ... sqlx.Initialise results in the file being renamed from datablock1.db TO datablock1.db.back ??

Hopefully someone with more SQL neurons can shed some light.

I modified your second project (the one where you have versionCode 2) before the 3rd one you posted. I was able to open and view data from the local database using the local database button, but when downloading the file datablock1.db, the download works, but the database datablock1.db does not open when I copied it to a PC and tried to open it using SQLite Expert Professional. It said: 'File is encrypted or not a database' There is something wrong with the file, that is why it would not initialize. Please see attached project: I also included a copy of the database downloaded that will not open. I changed its extension from db to txt so I can upload it to the forum

Now that you fixed the URL, I added a little bit of code to the Sub ActivateDb as shown below to your code and now I can display data from the downloaded database:

B4X:
Sub ActivateDb(strDbFile As String, bolCreateIfNecessary As Boolean) As ResumableSub
    Log(">")
    Log(">")
    Log("#-Sub ActivateDb, strDbFile =" & strDbFile)
    Log("#-  FileExists: " & File.Exists("", strDbFile) )
    '
    If Not(File.Exists("", strDbFile)) And Not(bolCreateIfNecessary) Then
        Return False
    End If
    '
    If sqlx.IsInitialized Then sqlx.Close
    '
    Log($"#-  Trying:  sqlx.Initialize("", "${strDbFile}", ${bolCreateIfNecessary})"$)
    sqlx.Initialize("", strDbFile, bolCreateIfNecessary) ' <-- here ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
    Dim res As ResultSet = sqlx.ExecQuery("SELECT name, sql FROM sqlite_master WHERE type='table'")
    Do While res.NextRow
'        Log("#-    " & res.GetString("name"))
        LogColor(res.GetString("name") & CRLF & res.GetString("sql"), Colors.Blue )
    Loop
    res.Close 
    Log("#-  Result = OK")
    Log(">")
    Log(">")
 
    Dim rs As ResultSet  
    Dim rs As ResultSet = sqlx.ExecQuery("SELECT id1, aname FROM a1")
    Do While rs.NextRow
        LogColor($"${rs.Getstring("id1")}       ${rs.Getstring("aname")}"$, Colors.Magenta)
    Loop
    rs.Close
 
    Return True
End Sub
Here is some of the data from the 2 records in table a1 (columns: id1 and aname):

Thanks so much for the support, guys.

I can confirm the successful download with the adapted link.

However.
When using the same link "https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=1qgnalqWv-cchSMCF63R6Uo9QZgJ50p92" in the main project, an HTML document is loaded instead of the expected file.​

2018-10-28_09-36-32.jpg

2018-10-28_08-57-04.jpg

The only difference between the test project and the main project is that in the main project the user is logged in using OAuth2 with the scope "https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive".​

Will investigate further...
