What are you trying to do?

Crystal formulas can use " " or ' ' for string data.  I would think you could use " " for the strings and a ' would then simply be a character.

crpt.Formulas(0) = "ReportTitle='MacDonald's Burger'"
the above will give an error.

So I tried
crpt.Formulas(0) = "ReportTitle='MacDonald''s Burger'"
and still give an error.

How do I solve the apostrophe problem?

Try
crpt.Formulas(0) = "ReportTitle='MacDonald""s Burger'"

That is a double double quote in Mconald's

crpt.Formulas(0) = "ReportTitle='MacDonald""s Burger'" works fine but my report title will display:

MacDonald"s Burger

instead of :

MacDonald's Burger

Try

crpt.Formulas(0) = "ReportTitle='MacDonald' + chr(27) + "'s Burger'"

chr(27) is the '
