"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are you having trouble building the query, or handling the user input?

Your best bet building the query would probably be to use parameterized queries. Stored procedures are best, but even inline sql can use parameters, eg:

Dim cmd as new SqlCommand("Insert INTO table (name, email) values (@name, @Email)")
cmd.Parameters.Add("@Name", "me")
cmd.Parameters.Add("@Email", "someuser@some.com")
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()

Rather than "Insert INTO table (name, email) values ('" & somevar & "', '" & someothervar & "')"

If the trouble is handling single quotes in user input try encoding the text using Server.HtmlEncode/Server.HtmlDecode...
