single quote ASCII

I am trying to pass to an update SQL statement a textfield value which might contain a single quote and this generate an error.
How can I convert a single quote into an ASCII character in a string "adfd  '  fd". Basically I would like to go through every character in a string and convert single quote character into a special character that will be accepted by SQL.

Function ReplaceQuotes(value)
value = Replace(value, "'", "''") 'Replace single quotes
value = Replace(value, """, """") 'Replace double quotes
 
ReplaceQuotes = value
End Function

try this..also..

strSQL="insert into table_name values"strSQL=strSQL & "(NAME='"strSQL=strSQL & replace(request("NAME"),"'","''") & "'," & request("DoB") & ")"In the above example if the value of the name field contains a single quote it will be replaced with two single quotes.
