This is a common problem. You should have a function on the front end that reformats the string and replaces all single quotes (') with 2 singke quotes (''). In visual basic you can use the REPLACE function.

You might try running a quick single quote double-upper to fix that....something along the lines of:

strrelation2descp = " & txtsourcedes2.Text.Replace("'","''")
