Section {ATTACH DATABASE} attach *ATTACH

BubbleDiagram attach-stmt 1
</tcl>

<p> ^The ATTACH DATABASE statement adds another database 
file to the current [database connection]. 
^The filename for the database to be attached is the value of
the expression that occurs before the AS keyword.
^The filename of the database follows the same semantics as the
filename argument to [sqlite3_open()] and [sqlite3_open_v2()]; the
special name "[:memory:]" results in an in-memory database and an
empty string results in a new temporary database.
The name that occurs after the AS keyword is the name of the database
used internally by SQLite.
^The database-names 'main' and 
'temp' refer to the main database and the database used for 
temporary tables.  ^The main and temp databases cannot be attached or
detached.</p>

<p> ^(Tables in an attached database can be referred to using the syntax 
<i>database-name.table-name</i>.)^  ^If the name of the table is unique
