Database Properties List - Query #databaseproperties

RMtrix_tiny_check.png

Currently under RootsMagic 4, the only way to obtain the Database Properties for a file is to go to File > Properties and use Alt+Prnt Screen (or Ctrl+Prnt Scrn) to copy the screen to the clipboard and use CTRL+V to paste the contents to a program capable of rendering the result.

In the meantime, the following code can be used to set up and populate a temporary table (outside of one's database):

CREATE TEMP TABLE VariableTable
(
Variable TEXT,
VALUE INTEGER
);
 
INSERT INTO VariableTable
SELECT 'People', COUNT(1)
FROM PersonTable;
 
INSERT INTO VariableTable
SELECT 'Families', COUNT(1)
FROM FamilyTable;
 
INSERT INTO VariableTable
SELECT 'Events', COUNT(1)
FROM EventTable;
 
INSERT INTO VariableTable
SELECT 'Alternate names', COUNT(1)
FROM NameTable
WHERE IsPrimary = 0;
 
INSERT INTO VariableTable
SELECT 'Places', COUNT(1)
FROM PlaceTable
WHERE PlaceType = 0;
 
INSERT INTO VariableTable
SELECT 'Sources', COUNT(1)
FROM SourceTable;
 
INSERT INTO VariableTable
SELECT 'Citations', COUNT(1)
FROM CitationTable;
 
INSERT INTO VariableTable
SELECT 'Repositories', COUNT(1)
FROM AddressTable
WHERE AddressType = 1;
 
INSERT INTO VariableTable
SELECT 'To-do tasks', COUNT(1)
FROM ResearchTable
WHERE TaskType = 0;
 
INSERT INTO VariableTable
SELECT 'Multimedia items', COUNT(1)
FROM MultimediaTable;
 
INSERT INTO VariableTable
SELECT 'Multimedia links', COUNT(1)
FROM MediaLinkTable;
 
INSERT INTO VariableTable
SELECT 'Addresses', COUNT(1)
FROM AddressTable
WHERE AddressType = 0;
 
INSERT INTO VariableTable
SELECT 'Correspondence', COUNT(1)
FROM ResearchTable
WHERE TaskType = 1;

The following code can then be run to produce the results of the Database Properties List:

SELECT *
FROM VariableTable;

Finally, this code can be run to drop that temporary table (or the SQLite manager can just be closed):

DROP TABLE VariableTable;

The results of the query should be able to be copied or exported in some useful format to a file, depending on the capabilities of the SQLite manager used.

The two items not currently a part of the result set on the first pass of trying to reproduce it include Database and Created.

Good idea!

Good idea, Romer! You could add to the page that the results may be copied or exported in some useful format, depending on the sqlite manager used, to a file.
