vb.net sql command error

I have a sql command that I get an error on the last entry my code looks like this



I get this error: on the last record only (it doesn't matter what it is. Now if I would take the last record and move it to the first it doesn't do it, but now the record I switch does it. So it is doing to the last record regardless of what the actual data is.)

Error: Synatax Error in string in query expression "

My code:
records is an array

                For t = 0 To records.Length
                    realdata= records(t)
                    command.CommandText = ""
                    command.CommandText = "Insert into table1(field1) values ('" & Replace$(realdata, "'", "''") & "')"
                    command.Connection = con
                    command.ExecuteNonQuery()
                next i


now the reason I have the replace function is because I have some ' in my data.

Now I eliminated the errors for the first couple of records, but everytime it hits the last record it gives me that error again. I used a debug.write(command.commandtext) and it looks like the insert line isn't putting in the ') at the end of the sql command.


so that is probrably what is wrong, but I cannot figure it out. Any ideas

why just the last record, any other ideas???

this is vb.net

Perhaps try:
For t = 0 To records.Length - 1

no the array is reading fine

for so reason the insert line for the last record is leaving out the ')



and giving me that error

each line seems to work until it gets to the last record and then nothing

when I used debug the only thing I can see that is missing is the ') on the last record.

I even tried to manually enter it and nothing.

I would simply output the results of my "Replace$(realdata, "'", "''")" function so that I can see what data is causing it to crash.

I've had problems where there were control characters in my string. I think you have a "line feed" that is causing the last  ') not to appear.

Perhaps this will help:
