sample: """" & StringVariable & """"

Um i think your problem may be that your not setting it to anything
ie.

Dim Temp as String

Temp = Replace(sQue, Chr(34), """)

That will do it

should be:

Replace(sQue, Chr(34), "")

it's as simple as that.

the problem is as Jonothan says....

Temp = Replace(sQue, Chr(34), """)

will work...

Replace DOESNT modify the original string passesd, it only modifies a copy of the same and returns the 'replaced' version.

Simple, Eazy, perfect solution that i will use:

Let say our variable strString contains the value "Sunny" (A string with quotes around it)

So to remove the quotes:
strString = Replace(strString,Chr(34),"")

Explaination:
strString = Replace(strString, Chr(34), TwoDoubleQuotes)

Hope I helped
