This does not work when the string contains a single quote.  Anyone one know a way around this?    



RstNewUserLookUp.Find ("UserID = " & "'" & strUserID & "'")

Hi Bbrian,

What about using chr(39) instead of single quotes.

RstNewUserLookUp.Find "UserID = " & chr(39) & strUserID & chr(39)

from MSDN CD :
The value in criteria may be a string, floating point number, or date. String values are delimited with single quotes (for example, "state = 'WA'"). Date values are delimited with "#" (number sign) marks (for example, "start_date > #7/22/97#").

so it should be work.

is userID a string value ? If so then this.

RstNewUserLookUp.Find "USerID='" & Replace(strUserId,"'","''") & "'"

Your solution seems to work.  But I'm not sure why.  So if

UserID = "O'Malley"
then function passes
'O''Malley'

How does the search function read this expression?

Also I have found that this expression
fails if there is more than one "'"


RstNewUserLookUp.Find "USerID='" & Replace(strUserId,"'","''") & "'"

Thanks Marine!!
But if there is more than one "'"
it fails.  You can use "#" & struserid & "#"

But then you can't use pound signs and apostrophes together in a single
