Instructions for saving to SQL?

Could anyone share with me information they found useful for learning how to take inputs from Dash and save to a SQL database. The database structure has already been created.


Hello @bpolasek,

There are a few ways:

You can save a dataframe directly to sql using df.to_sql.

You can hook up to PostgreSQL and push updates that way:

Or, if you want transactions and SQL strings, you can use a library like pyodbc.

I personally use the last option, as I do some pretty extensive updates to a SQL server.

Yeah so I have been reading in data from a SQL database to generate graphs. Now I need to save some settings from these graphs into different SQL database tables. The current SQL set up uses pyodbc so I’m sure that is probably what I need to go for here.

In that case, you can create a cursor and perform an execute a raw SQL could with your updates.

Remember, do not take user’s inputs directly, but use ? as a placeholder.

Also, do not forget to commit after you are done. :slight_smile:
