I want to isolate and remove all apostrophies "'" from the string "Jerry's House of Pancakes"(as you can tell I am craving food right now).  I know you can do this with an array but every attempt I have made seems to fail. Any code would be helpful. This should be an easy 50 for someone : )

Try:

Dim myString as String
Dim thePos as Integer
Dim finalString as String
 
MyString = "Jerry's House.."

thePos = Instr(myString, "'")      ' Returns the position
If thePos > 0 then  'Find '
     FinalString = Left(MyString, thePos -1) & right(myString, Len(myString)-thePos)

If you have multiple, put it in a loop.
