How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

you will need to have SQLite3 installed on your system, the database in question on your system and then navigate to the installation directory (or have the program directory in your PATH) before you type the sqlite command. You could also see if your DB Browser GUI program has the ability to export directly to a CSV. Or, if you do really only do expect to deal with 4 lines of data at a time, you can probably control-A (highlight all), control-C (copy) and then paste into excel directly.

As your question is more of a how-do-i-use-a-dos-prompt question than a database question, further follow-up should probably be on one of the other stackexchanges (stack overflow?) or by reading the documentation for SQLite.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
