Export and Import SQLite data from LC Project?

I don't think there's a built in way to do this in LC, you'd have to write
some code.

Alternatively, if you have sqlite3 on your computer, you could run it from
LC and pass it the necessary commands to dump and restore the db.  To dump
the data, You'd need to send it a .mode command with a mode of insert ( to
create SQL Insert statements), then a .dump command.  To add it back, use
the sqlite3 .read command.  Run sqlite3 and enter .help for more specific

All that assumes the table you are loading data into doesn't already have
the dumped data in it.
