Hi im having a problem with importing data from access into SQL;

It does not like Mc'Smith or in other words '

using the following:

SqlCeConnection connection = new SqlCeConnection(ConnectionString);
                    connection.Open();

                    foreach (DataRow row in ds.Tables[0].Rows)
                    {

                        SqlCeCommand command = connection.CreateCommand();

                        //SqlCeCommand sqlCom = new SqlCeCommand();
                        string strtitle = row["Title"].ToString();
                        string strinitials = row["Initials"].ToString();
                        string strlastname = row["Surname"].ToString();
                        string straddress = row["Address 1"].ToString();
                        string straddress1 = row["Address 2"].ToString();
                        string strtown = row["Address 3"].ToString();
                        //string strcounty = row["county"].ToString();
                        string strpostcode = row["postcode"].ToString();
                        string strcountry = row["country"].ToString();
                        string stremail = row["Email"].ToString();
                        string strtel = row["phone number"].ToString();
                        //string strhdyhau = row["hdyhau"].ToString();
                        //string stripadd = row["ipadd"].ToString();
                        string strcate = "Explorers";
                        //string strdaterecieved = row["daterecieved"].ToString();
                        string strsubscribe = "No";
                        string strdelmethod = "By Post";
                       
                        string strimportfrom = "Source";
                        string strclientenabled = "Yes";
                        string strbrochureSubscibe = "Yes";



                        SqlCeParameter param = new SqlCeParameter();
                        param.ParameterName = "@MyParam";
                        param.Value = (DateTime)row["Reservation Date"];
                        command.Parameters.Add(param);

                        command.CommandText = @"INSERT INTO Eaddress (title, name, lastname, address, address1, town, postcode, country, emailad, tel, subscribeemail, cate, importeddate, EnquireDate, importedfrom, delmethod, clientEnabled, subscribebrochure) VALUES ('" + strtitle + "', '" + strinitials + "', '" + strlastname + "', '" + straddress + "', '" + straddress1 + "', '" + strtown + "', '" + strpostcode + "', '" + strcountry + "', '" + stremail + "', '" + strtel + "', '" + strsubscribe + "', '" + strcate + "', GETDATE(), @MyParam, '" + strimportfrom + "', '" + strdelmethod + "', '" + strclientenabled + "', '" + strbrochureSubscibe + "')";
                        command.ExecuteNonQuery();



                    }

can someone show me how to either ignore the ' , take it out or insert it (its the Surname Field i have the problem)

thanks

for all of the fields that are string data, do like this:
 string strtitle = row["Title"].ToString().Replace("'", "''");

now, you seem to be copying the rows from 1 data table to another database, are these 2 different databases? doing a INSERT INTO ... SELECT ... FROM  should be faster ?!
if that is not possible, you still might look up a parametrized query, that will take the burden from the quotes from you.

trimend is to trim away characters at the end of the string, and the parameter is to indicate which character...

you want to use this:
string strLastname = row["Surname"].ToString().Substring(0,10);
