how to remove double quote from string

Hopefully a simple solution.  I am trying to pass text to a variable...


This is a "lovely day" for all of us experts.

I want to assign the text above to a variable (strData) and I want to strip out the double quotes.  I am getting that text from my CMS application.
I have been using this without any luck
function cleanString(myString)
    myString = replace(myString,"'","")
    myString = replace(myString,"","")   
    myString = replace(mystring,"", "")
    myString = replace(mystring,"", "")
   ' myString = Replace(mystring, """, "")
    mySring  = Replace(mystring, "'", "")
    myString = replace(mystring, """","")
    'myString = replace(mystring,"chr(34)","")
    'myString = replace(mystring, chr(34),"")
    cleanString = myString
end function

Hmm.. This should have resolved the problem:

myString = replace(mystring, """","")

I wonder if it's an issue with it going thru the function properly. What happens when you run the replace directly on the string itself, then print it out to see?

mystring = 'This word is "quoted" yo.'
mystring = replace(mystring, """","")
response.write mystring

If it still fails, do a replace for another character just to ensure it is working properly (say, the character 'o').

If the above suggestion does not work, may be it is not a double quote?

Can you try and replace a ascii character 168 (ALT-0168 : ยจ), that looks like a double quoute.
