In a web application (uses ASP), users are asked to answer a question through a multiple-line input box. When using the ' char, as in "I'm", the input following to that gets ignored when storing the data in the database. I know the cause - but how can I prevent it from occuring?

Just put the String you send to the SQL-Server in "<string>"
This should solve that.

How exactly should this be done? My app reads stuff off a form, and then directly inserts it. Where should the <string> tag be?

using the Replace function replace the ' with 2x '

REPLACE(Request.Form("field_whatever"), "'", "''")

But you can also URLEncode the string and URLDecode it back when you get the data from the database.
