'' will be accepted by Access as a ' ?

like if I enter somethink like:


what's your best ...


when I would retreive it from ACCESS and put it in a label's caption, it would be " what's your best ... " ?

Replace single quote with two single quotes

Replace single quote with two single quotes

   '  ->  ''

Note that's not a double-quote (as in speech marks), it's an apostrophe, ascii characer 39.  This isn't overly clear in any of the posts above.

When SAVING data (as the original question asks), that is what you do (always replace all single-quotes with two-single-quotes).

This will be stored in the Database as a single quote.

When you next READ the data, it will have a single quote as expected.
