An sqlite database should be created as soon as I run my application. I am getting an error near the create table statement saying TABLEtbl_Repair_Status: syntax error(code 1)...

My actual statement does not have any syntax errors, nor does it have that missing space the log cat is displaying.

Any idea what the problem might be ?

String createRepairStatus = "CREATE TABLE " + TABLE_REPAIR_STATUS + "(_id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, status_name TEXT);";

I don't know sqlite but if it says there is a syntax error, I wouldn't argue with it.

The comment I posted is the actual statement. There does not seem to be any syntax errors, I also tried removing all concatenations and hard-coded the whole statement. If there really is a syntax error, than I am not seeing it.

Try adding not null on your primary key:
private static final String createRepairStatus = "CREATE TABLE " + TABLE_REPAIR_STATUS + "(_id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY NOT NULL, status_name TEXT);" ;

Mehdi, thank you for your answer. Isn't a primary key set to not null by default?
Solved this question.

Tried closing down and re-opening Eclipse.
had no space after restarting, which I am positively sure was there before.

I hope this helps someone else too.
