I am trying to use the escape characters in my query and I am getting the syntax error as
Incorrect syntax near 'Ifft & Co., P.A.'.  
Please help.


 strSQLQuery = "SELECT id,firm,residentmanager,address, city +', '+ state+', ' + zip as address2,phone,discipline,issuerenewdate,registrationexpiredate,certstatus FROM tblboadata where ksboatype ='" & "F" & "' and (firm LIKE('%'+Replace(Replace(Replace(Replace(Firm,'\', '\\'), '[', '\['), '_', '\_'), '%', '\%')+'%') ESCAPE '\')'" & sFirm & "'"

The end of your SQL string looks fishy:
       ESCAPE '\')'" & sFirm & "'"

That will put something like:  ESCAPE '\')'sFirmContents'

What is an example of what can be in sFirm?

Below are the examples for the querystring(sFirm)

Ifft & Co., P.A.
Schmidt & Eudaley CPA's, P.A.
Schulteis and Walsh, P.A.

So should I need to remove the single quote?

Thanks,

No need to remove the single quotes, just replace them with 2 single quotes.  Does the following work?

"SELECT id,firm,residentmanager,address, city +', '+ state+', ' + zip as address2,phone,discipline,issuerenewdate,registrationexpiredate,certstatus FROM tblboadata where ksboatype ='" & "F" & "' and firm LIKE '%" & sFirm.Replace("\", "\\").Replace("[", "\[").Replace("_", "\_").Replace("%", "\%").Replace("'", "''") & "%'"
