Is it just me, or is Sqlite3 goofy?

Because I can extrapolate. I *know* before even trying it that
if I export all my data from a sqlite db to a csv file and then try
to import it into Access that there will be problems if the fields
aren't static typed.

That's one of the reasons why I was such a good test engineer.
I could anticipate problems the design engineers didn't think of
and I would deliberately provoke those problems during testing
and crash their hardware/software.

I wasn't very popular.
