Hi,

I have a RunSQL statement in my code like this:

DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO MyTable SET MyField='" & MyValue & "';"

If MyValue is ...

"It's raining."

Then I get the problem of the extra ' (apostroph) in the string MyValue. Same in WHERE clauses.

What is the solution for this problem?
How can I change the SQL statements?

Thanks ...

BL

Just use the chr(34) to embed the double qoute in the string:

DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO MyTable SET MyField=" & chr(34) & MyValue & chr(34) & ";"
