no it is because it includes a quote. you need to do something like:
strV = "khdfkhsdkfh'sdfsdf'"
sql = "insert into t1(field1) values('" & replace(strv,"'","''") & "')"

Hi,

The problem is because of the ' character in your string.

It happens once in a while that the application users enter a string with a ' character.

You can use the following function in your applications to get a valid SQL string.

Private Function GetValidSQLString(ByVal SourceString As Variant) As String
    If IsNull(SourceString) Then
        GetValidSQLString = ""
    Else
        GetValidSQLString = "'" & Replace(SourceString, "'", "''", , , vbTextCompare) & "'"
    End If
End Function

A way to call this function may be:
str = "khdfkhsdkfh'sdfsdf'"
str = GetValidSQLString(str)
This will set str value equal to 'khdfkhsdkfh''sdfsdf'''
and the expression will become:

Insert Into Table(columnname) Values('khdfkhsdkfh''sdfsdf''')
Use it like this
Ex.
sSQL = "Insert Into TableName(ColumnName)"
sSQL = sSQL & "Values(" & GetValidSQLString(str) & ")"
