How do I dump the data, and only the data, not the schema, of some SQLite3 tables of a database (not all the tables)? The dump should be in SQL format, as it should be easily re-entered into the database later and should be done from the command line. Something like

sqlite3 db .dump

but without dumping the schema and selecting which tables to dump.

To get a CSV file, try using below code:

.mode csv 

-- use '.separator SOME_STRING' for something other than a comma.

.headers on 

.out file.csv 

select * from MyTable;

But, if you want to reinsert into a different SQLite database then use below code:

.mode insert <target_table_name>

.out file.sql 

select * from MyTable;
