As this two characters (' and ") are reserved for string blocking in SQL statement, error occour if my searching string contains these two characters using Findfirst method.

Any ideas to solve it, when my string contains these two characters? Of course, the record should be found correctly.

Here's the function i'm using for the ' character it can be use for the " character either.  You just have to double your '  so if you have like o'donnell in your query your query should look like  o''donnell, that's al.

Function apostrophe(texte As String)
      temp_texte$ = texte$
      lo = Len(temp_texte$)
      x = 0
      Do While x < lo
         x = x + 1
         If Mid$(temp_texte$, x, 1) = "'" Then
             temp_texte$ = Mid$(temp_texte$, 1, x) + Mid$(temp_texte$, x)
             lo = lo + 1
             x = x + 1
         End If
      Loop
      apostrophe = temp_texte$
End Function
