What i want to do is migrate my SQL Views to SQLite.
I have tried the following tools:

http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/26932/Convert-SQL-Server-DB-to-SQLite-DB
http://convertdb.com/views_translation

But those tools seem to only migrate my SQL Tables and not my views. Any tool out there to do that?

The big picture is that i need to put a website on a CD that connects to a database. MS Access could not hold my data so i am trying to use SQLite insead.

in both SQL and SQLite, a view is a saved select statement.

it's pretty much just CREATE VIEW VIEWNAME AS SELECT.....

where are you having trouble? do you want to materialize the SQL view as a table in SQLite, or still as a view?

I just ended up keeping MS Access on my application and did away with the view that was giving me problems. When you import a SQL View to MS Access it imports the data as a table and it was too large.
My workaround was to replace in my code where i was calling a View, to a dynamic SQL Statement.
