try this function and call it  in query

 Public Function fixit(ByVal somestr As String) As String

        fixit = Replace(somestr, "'", "''")

    End Function

use it for ex

insert into tblStudent values( 1, fixit('Sachin's wife'));

i've worked with this and i m sure it will work.

Unless I'm mistaken, that should be:

insert into tblStudent values( 1, 'Sachin\'s wife');

>> insert into tblStudent values(1,'fixit(Sachin's wife)');

Guess it'll definitely not work. You're not calling the fixit () function. You're putting it as a constant 'fixit(...). Might give an error after Sachin'....

Perhaps what you can try is either what crazycomputers sugessted or if that doesn't work, use another dummy character instead of ' and while reading from the database, check if its that character and display ' in its place.

The \ is standard for escaping special characters in SQL expressions, but we all know how M$ violates standards.  '' might work, but I'd put my money on \'
