import e32db, time timestamp = time.time() distance = 10.5 comment = "I'm fine, thanks!" # for date/time, int/float, and string respectively sql = "INSERT INTO events VALUES (#%s#, %d, '%s')" %\ (e32db.format_time(timestamp), distance, comment.replace("'", "''") )- date/time need to be quoted with # and formatted with e32db.format_time - int/float need no quotation - string need to be quoted with single quote and repeat the quote if it happen to be inside. - binary can't be used. You may need to encode it (eg. base64) One day, I wish to see an easy-to-use SQL abstraction layer for pys60. An ORM(SQLObject or SQLAlchemy) is even better.
