As a data migration task, you'll have some planning to do to ensure data types between the two systems are compatible, especially dates.

You can export data from SQL 2008 in a variety of ways, the easiest being by right-clicking on a database in SQL Management Studio and left-clicking on Export Data or Tasks > Generate Scripts.

Hopefully that will get you started but come back to us if you need further help.

i've done this in vb.Net / C#.Net; let us know if you are a programmer and just need a deeper code example.
once i had the reference to System.Data.SQLite it's really easy.

Dim f As String = Application.StartupPath & "\" & "Stormrage.SQLite.db3"

'delete so we can test the whole process:
If File.Exists(f) Then
End If

Dim SQLconn As New System.Data.SQLite.SQLiteConnection()
Dim SQLcommand As SQLiteCommand
Dim sql As String
'create database if it does not exist
If Not File.Exists(f) Then
Dim SQLconnect As New System.Data.SQLite.SQLiteConnection()
'Database Doesn't Exist so Created at Path
SQLconnect.ConnectionString = "Data Source=" & f & ";"
End If
Catch ex As Exception
End Try
'now the file exists, lets add some tables.
SQLconn.ConnectionString = "Data Source=" & f & ";"
SQLcommand = SQLconn.CreateCommand
''drop all the tables if they exist:
'Dim SchemaTable As New DataTable
'SchemaTable = SQLconn.GetSchema(SQLiteMetaDataCollectionNames.Tables, {"NEXUSLEVELS"})
'For int As Integer = 0 To SchemaTable.Rows.Count - 1
' If SchemaTable.Rows(int)!TABLE_TYPE.ToString = "table" Then
' sql =
' End If
'> create table t (
'> a varchar(15) check (length(a) <= 15),
'> b integer check (typeof(b) = 'integer')
sql = "CREATE TABLE [SQLiteDevelopers] ( " & vbCrLf
sql = sql & "[DeveloperID] INTEGER IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL, " & vbCrLf
sql = sql & "[DeveloperName] VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL, " & vbCrLf
sql = sql & "[DeveloperType] VARCHAR(30) NULL DEFAULT 'EVIL', " & vbCrLf
sql = sql & " PRIMARY KEY (DeveloperID), " & vbCrLf
sql = sql & " CHECK ([DeveloperType] = 'EVIL' OR [DeveloperType] = 'GOOD' OR [DeveloperType] = 'NEUTRAL') ) " & vbCrLf
sql = sql & " " & vbCrLf
SQLcommand.CommandText = sql


help us help you!
