SQL Problems on VC5.0 with ODBC

Hi experts,
I'm looking for the syntax of the sqlstatments that have a ' in the data.
My table has a Entry in Hive like this : [ULM\Dr.Salomon's]
my SQL-statments : SELECT * FROM RegistryEntry WHERE Hive = '[ULM\Dr.Salomon's]';

but the problem is the ' in Dr.Salomon's
what the solution ?
Thanks

Try doubling the single quote.  As far as I know, in normal SQL statements (not under vc5.0/ODBC) thats how you escape the single quote.  I've done it before under different development platforms.

It is not a function of VC5, but of the ODBC driver and the underlying database.

1) Use double quotes around the literal so the single quote is part of the string.
SELECT * FROM RegistryEntry WHERE Hive = "[ULM\Dr.Salomon's]";

2) use `back quotes` around the string
SELECT * FROM RegistryEntry WHERE Hive = `[ULM\Dr.Salomon's]`;
