Escape the quotes with a backslash?

I'm not familiar with vb.net, but a js example...

var myStr = 'string\'s with quote\'s';

Check this:

 jscript = "<script>window.opener.baseform.well_name.value='" & Replace(NameStr,"'","\'") & "';opener.document.forms(0).submit(); opener.focus(); self.close();</script>"
