There are quite a few ways to do this.

For example, you can write a small application (VB.Net, C#) which connects to the Access Database using OleDb and gets the data to a dataset. After that connect to the SQLite database using for example System.Data.SQLite[^] or OleDb again and insert the data from the dataset to the database.

A completely different approach could be to export the data from Access into a CSV file using TransferText[^] and then importing the data into SQLite using SQLite shell, see sqlite - Importing Files[^]

Thank you and is there some simple way how to insert the dataset to a sqlite database or must I make schema and insert values myself?

In my opinion the best way would be to create the schema beforehand. This way you get all the constraints etc correctly in place.
