its doing same as venkateshwarr wrote, anyway ..

Unless I'm mistaken, that should be:

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

sorry ,
it should be
 insert into tblStudent values(1,'fixit(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.

i meant

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

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 \'
