I have a column called VirtualTours in which I want to remove single quotes and commas. I am trying to use the replace function. See below (incorrect) example.

BEGIN TRAN; UPDATE    listings
                              SET              [virtualtours] = replace('''', '', [virtualtours]);
                                                         SELECT     VirtualTours
                                                          FROM         listings
                                                          WHERE     LEN(VirtualTours) > 1; ROLLBACK;

For example, I have 'vt',   and I want it to return vt.
