this should work:

fixedFilterPart = "owner_text="+"'" + document.all.ownerType.value+ "'";

Use \ before the ' to escape the character.

fixedFilterPart='owner_text=\''+document.all.ownerType.value+'\'';

suresh raina (?),

If you know C, then you will know about escape characters. In C, you'll use \' for single quotes and \" for double quotes.

In Javascript too, you need the same. But here, you don't need to escape single quote inside double quotes or double quote inside single quotes. What you need to escape is.. single quote inside single quotes and double quote inside double quotes.

So,
"'" is same as '\''
and
'"' is same as "\""
