I need to do something where I create a blank database, and then run commands to generate my schema. I have everything worked out as far as I can tell, but for some reason every time I try to connect I get an error saying "Invalid format for parameter C:\Test\test.db"

Here's the code where I get the problem.
               String connectionString = "Data Source=" + filePath+";";
               using (var connection = new SQLiteConnection(filePath))
I have tried it with DataSource or Data Source in the connection string property. I also tried with and without that appended semicolon at the end. The CreateFile works, but then I can't get my connection to open. It throws an exception every time.

Can anyone please help me?

you're using 'filepath' to open the connection. I guess u forgot to use connectionString you've created :)

You must pass connectionString to the constructor, not the path

using (var connection = new SQLiteConnection(connectionString))

LOL thanks. Count that one up as a brain fart that I just needed a fresh pair of eyes on. Thanks
