SQL Encoding: With ADO

I find that when I encode strings from a form with ' or `, I get errors when trying to pass this string to the ADO object for inserting into a database table; its because it think the ' or ` character is the string terminator.  This means any other fields are out of sync.

For example:

- name, message, ID, date

"joe", "it's friday", 256, #12-3-1998#

this is encoded as

"joe", "it`'`s friday", 256, #12-3-1998#

This still produces an error from ADO!

1.
#12-3-1998# is no good for a date-variable on MS SQL (it is the right thing to do in Access though)

use this in stead:

"CONVERT(DateTime,'12-3-1998')"


2.
escape quote characters to get them into the database:

EscapedString = REPLACE(String,CHR(39),CHR(39)&CHR(39))

Is the REplace() function in
EscapedString = REPLACE(String,CHR(39),CHR(39)&CHR(39))

ADO, DAO, or just VBScript??
