Hi afentonjm,

Double it, SQL will interpret two successive ' ('') as a single quote and store the single quote but will not generate an error.

Hello,

Use    XML Entity  reference in place of single quote.   i.e  "&#39;".  

Now your new syntax looks like ......

( < tablename   notes = " 2000.00 rec&#39;d from......" /> )



All the best,
