Jacob Lyohne, Director of Development: "Regarding implementation, it is pretty self-explanatory and the SQLite Maestro manual is helpful for review and reference. We also found the on-line documentation useful and the software support staff readily available to answer our questions. Reports are very easy and quick to run and can be broken down into any number of statistical combinations".
Johnattan Badden, Manager: "The software is easy to work with and most importantly, report management is extremely easy, even for a novice like me! I am able to create and edit my databases with a few clicks and easily maintain them afterwards. I highly recommend SQLite Maestro to educational institutions: it's easy and flexible, it is exactly what can be good for using in schools and colleges".

Triggers

A trigger is a specification that the database should automatically execute a particular function whenever a certain type of operation is performed. A trigger can be defined to execute before or after an INSERT, UPDATE, UPDATE OF or DELETE operation, either once per modified row, or once per SQL statement. If a trigger event occurs, the trigger fires.

 

 

Triggers are created within Create Trigger Wizard. In order to run the wizard you should either

 

open the table in Table Editor and the Triggers tab there;
press the Insert key or select the Add New Trigger... item from the popup menu (alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar)

or

select the table in the explorer tree and use the Create New Trigger... popup menu item

or

select the table Triggers node or any trigger within the table in the explorer tree and use the Add New Trigger... popup menu item.

 

 

Triggers are edited within the Trigger Editor dialog window. In order to open the dialog you should either

 

open the table in Table Editor and the Triggers tab there;
press the Enter key or select the Edit Trigger item from the popup menu (alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar)

or

select the trigger to edit in the explorer tree and use the Edit Trigger popup menu item.

       

You can change the name of the trigger using the Rename Trigger dialog. To open the dialog you should either

 

select the trigger to rename in the explorer tree;
select the Rename Trigger item from the popup menu

or

open the table in Table Editor and the Triggers tab there;
select the trigger to rename;
select the Rename Trigger item from the popup menu (alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar).

 

 

 

To drop the trigger:

 

select the trigger to drop in the explorer tree;
select the Drop Trigger item from the popup menu

or

open the table in Table Editor and the Triggers tab there;
press the Delete key or select the Drop Trigger item from the popup menu (alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar)

 

and confirm dropping in the dialog window.
