This tutorial demonstrates how TSQLServer can be used to create a connection with a SQlite3 database. It accesses the Sqlite data base. Download from https://root.cern/files/root_download_stats.sqlite In order to demonstrate the dependency over ROOT version 6.14, this tutorial uses the TSQLResult function which allows to extract the minimum time stored in the SQlite3 database. The next step is to create a TH1F Histogram, which will be filled with the values stored in two different columns from the database, the "Time" and "Version" columns. This product includes GeoLite2 data created by MaxMind, available from http://www.maxmind.com.
