[Ironpython-users] DataSet --> SQLite

So far I've worked out a solution iterating through the dataset.  It's
slow and the hard drive pins, but this report is only intended to be run
once a year so performance isn't exactly a priority:

	for i in range(self.oraData2.Tables[0].Rows.Count -1):
		title = self.oraData2.Tables[0].Rows[i][0]
		bcode =  self.oraData2.Tables[0].Rows[i][1]
		callno = str(self.oraData2.Tables[0].Rows[i][2])
		stat1 = str(self.oraData2.Tables[0].Rows[i][3])
		stat2 = str(self.oraData2.Tables[0].Rows[i][4])

		(prep and execute SQL)

I'm on a bit of a timeline with this project before the end of the
semester so I'll explore a more performance friendly method once our
library gets underway with this version.

To be honest; System.Data.SQLite wasn't working because I've no idea how
to do it!  :0  I kept translating code examples from VB and C# but it
didn't work.  I'm sure it can be done quite well, I'm just a little too
green on the subject.  :)
