MSSQL guid Data type converting to SQLite

Greetings,

I need to convert an MSSQL db into SQLite.  One of the fields in MSSQL has a data type of 'uniqueidentifer' which is a guid.

When I convert this db into SQLite there is not data type guid.  I need to maintain the references across many tables all of which have guid's as the primary key.

There are 55 tables to deal with.  All relating to each other via the guid's

Any suggestions on how to handle this?  (I am writing the code in C#)

Thanks,
Ron

SQLite does not have many special datatypes. In fact, there are only five datatypes. There is no even a date datatype and there are two different options for storing them. D. Richard Hipp recommends using the ISO standard, and I tend to agree with him, as it is sortable and human readable.

As for your problem - use TEXT (which is a synonym of a VARCHAR/VARCHAR2 datatype in SQLite). You do not even need to specify the size there, but if you insist then use VARCHAR(16)
