The <a href="lang_attach.html">ATTACH</a> statement is an SQLite extension
that allows two or more databases to be associated to the same database
connection and to operate as if they were a single database.  The number
of simultaneously attached databases is limited to SQLITE_MAX_ATTACHED
which is set to 10 by default.
The code generator in SQLite uses bitmaps
to keep track of attached databases.  That means that the number of
attached databases cannot be increased above 30 on a machines with
a 32-bit integer.</p>

<p>
The maximum number of attached databases can be lowered at run-time using
the [sqlite3_limit](db,[SQLITE_LIMIT_ATTACHED],size) interface.
</p>
}

................................................................................
The SQLITE_MAX_PAGE_COUNT parameter, which is normally set to
1073741823, is the maximum number of pages allowed in a single
database file.  An attempt to insert new data that would cause
the database file to grow larger than this will return
SQLITE_FULL.
</p>






<p>
The <a href="pragma.html#pragma_max_page_count">
max_page_count PRAGMA</a> can be used to raise or lower this
limit at run-time.

connection and to operate as if they were a single database.  The number
of simultaneously attached databases is limited to SQLITE_MAX_ATTACHED
which is set to 10 by default.
The code generator in SQLite uses bitmaps
to keep track of attached databases.  That means that the number of

<p>
The maximum number of attached databases can be lowered at run-time using

The SQLITE_MAX_PAGE_COUNT parameter, which is normally set to
1073741823, is the maximum number of pages allowed in a single
database file.  An attempt to insert new data that would cause
the database file to grow larger than this will return
SQLITE_FULL.
</p>

<p>
The largest possible setting for SQLITE_MAX_PAGE_COUNT is 2147483646.
When used with the maximum page size of 65536, this gives a maximum
SQLite database size of about 14 terabytes.</p>

<p>
The <a href="pragma.html#pragma_max_page_count">
max_page_count PRAGMA</a> can be used to raise or lower this
limit at run-time.

limititem {Maximum Number Of Rows In A Table} {} {
<p>
The theoretical maximum number of rows in a table is
2<sup><small>64</small></sup> (18446744073709551616 or about 1.8e+19).
This limit is unreachable since the maximum database size of 14 terabytes
will be reached first.  A 14 terabytes database can hold no more than
approximately 1e+13 rows, and then only if there are no indices and if
each row contains very little data.
