Storing NODE-RED input into an SQLite database

I have been given a task to store a set of data into an SQLite database. I have to code the function node (format data) so the SQLite node is able to store my data. The 'database' node accepts SQL Query via msg.topic.

Here is the flow I have constructed

Below is the code for my 'input data' function node.

Would greatly appreciate any help regarding the 'format data' node.

You would be better off using a template node to format the query. Here is a sample flow showing you how you could do it. NOTE: you will have to define the path to the database in the sqlite node.
