[odb-users] Opening an already existing database (SQLite) and appending

Quick question.

When using sqlite, what is the correct command to open an already existing database and append to it, rather than overwrite it?
I tried create_database as in the hello example. But if I recompile to persist a different person, it seems to overwrite.

I also tried the database constructor that takes in a name and flags - something to the effect "database(string name, int flags)", setting the flags to SQLITE_OPEN_READWRITE | SQLITE_OPEN_CREATE, with no luck.

I'm sure I'm making a very fundamental mistake. Any recommendations?
