DateTime Fields

Note that when working with "DateTime" fields in SQLite, the value saved in the field and used for comparison operations must match one of the 10 allowed formats: https://www.sqlite.org/lang_datefunc.html. Starfish's FormatDate function can help with this. See this vbscript for an example:

Sub VBScriptProcedure
'LogMessage FormatDate(Now, "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss")
'LogMessage FormatDate(DateAdd("yyyy",-1,Now), "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss")
	If PreviewMode <> True Then
		dim b
		b = SQLiteUpdate("contacts_to_update_from_leads","processed='1', date_modified='"&FormatDate(Now, "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss")&"'","contactid='@@ORG:contactid@@' and leadid='@@ORG:leadid@@' and (processed<>'1' or processed is null)")	
		dim d
		d = SQLiteDelete("contacts_to_update_from_leads","processed='1' and date_modified<'"&FormatDate(DateAdd("yyyy",-1,Now), "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss")&"'")
	End If
End Sub


The SQLite connector has the Levenshtein function! A couple of examples:

SELECT LEVENSHTEIN( 'Microsoft', 'Technology Advisors, Inc.' )

Result: 21

SELECT LEVENSHTEIN( 'Technology Advisors Inc', 'Technology Advisors, Inc.' )

Result: 2

Comparing 2 strings is obviously less than useful, so you would want to do something like:



If your source SQLite table has a DateTime field, you may get the error: “String not recognized as a valid datetime”. If you get this error, add "datetimeformat=CurrentCulture", without double quotes, to the "Additional Connection String Parameters:" field on the Origin tab.
