Hello guys,

I am having some  trouble to create a string this way

Str = 'Select * from table where field='' september" '

 Month := QuotedStr('' " '') + month_alias[StrToInt(Copy(Std[I],5,2))-1] + QuotedStr('' " '')

I tried several ways, but nothing so far

As you can see, I have a double quote in september

Thanks

the way to use quotedstr is:
month:= quotedstr( month_alias[StrToInt(Copy(Std[I],5,2))-1] );
which will result in 'september' for example
if you wan it to put in that select then use:

str:=quotedstr('Select * from table where fieId="+month_alias[StrToInt(Copy(Std[I],5,2))-1]+"')

though in this particular case of yours, I don't really see the need of quotedstr as you do not use single quotes in the string.

also keep in mind that
str:=quotedstr('Select * from table where fieId="+month_alias[StrToInt(Copy(Std[I],5,2))-1]+"')
will result in  'Select * from table where fieId="september"' WITH single quotes. in delphi that would be written as a constant
'''Select * from table where fieId="september"''' (see 3 single quotes at begining and end that represent 1 escaped single quote and a single quote so tha final string will actually contain a single quote at the beginig and end of the string. I am sure you don't want this ... but then again, you know better)
