SQL As Understood By SQLite

SQLite understands most of the standard SQL language. But it does omit some features while at the same time adding a few features of its own. This document attempts to describe precisely what parts of the SQL language SQLite does and does not support. A list of SQL keywords is also provided. The SQL language syntax is described by syntax diagrams.

The following syntax documentation topics are available:

The routines sqlite3_prepare_v2(), sqlite3_prepare(), sqlite3_prepare16(), sqlite3_prepare16_v2(), sqlite3_exec(), and sqlite3_get_table() accept an SQL statement list (sql-stmt-list) which is a semicolon-separated list of statements.


sql-stmt ;

Each SQL statement in the statement list is an instance of the following:


EXPLAIN QUERY PLAN alter-table-stmt analyze-stmt attach-stmt begin-stmt commit-stmt create-index-stmt create-table-stmt create-trigger-stmt create-view-stmt create-virtual-table-stmt delete-stmt delete-stmt-limited detach-stmt drop-index-stmt drop-table-stmt drop-trigger-stmt drop-view-stmt insert-stmt pragma-stmt reindex-stmt release-stmt rollback-stmt savepoint-stmt select-stmt update-stmt update-stmt-limited vacuum-stmt
