Hi All,

First and foremost, Fred, thank you for the latest release and all your effort.

Now for my puzzle, I

Sean Roe

Been following an issue over on the SQLite forums through email and there was someone else mentioning about a speed problem and that you should go hear for the answer: http://www.sqlite.org/src/ci/27c65d4d9c?sbs=0

And that upgrading to 3.7.8 will fix it.

Here is part of the email i received:

That's it!, I've set
PRAGMA automatic_index = false;
and it's back to normal speed.

Seems a very long hold up just for creating an index though - It's a very
small table really, < 100 rows.

Anyway happy enough with a workaround for now, appreciate your help.

I have not noticed any problem with  Keep us posted if 3.7.8 fixes problem.

Hi Sean,

Thanks for the pointer, I am happy to report 3.7.8 does indeed fix the problem! I haven't tried using "PRAGMA automatic_index = false" with earlier versions to see if it also resolves the problem.

I can't say I understand what's happening/going on but 3.7.8 does resolves the speed issue.

Thanks for the help Sean and Fred for a great product... isn't this forum great?!?!

Best Regards,

And using:

slEXE( "PRAGMA automatic_index = false", "E" )

Resolves the issue with version! However, 3.7.8 still seems to be faster to me, athough 3.7.8's faster speed versus is strictly based on observation and not on hard testing.
