  • Hi deeps12345,

    As far as I know, the EF6 provider implementation in System.Data.SQLite.EF6 doesn't support creating tables. The SQLite EF6 provider is basically the same as their Linq implementation so it's all aimed at querying the database rather than modifying it. if you want to change table structure, I would suggest that you could modify it on SQLite Database, and then the entity class.

    About entity framework and SQLite, please refer to the following article.
