Hi,

This is an addition to a previously asked question:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Q_26301876.html

Everything works great except for some of the customer names has an Apostrophes within the name. I am getting this error when writing to the new table.

Run-time error 3075
Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression "Today's Shopper",'08032');'.

When I remove the Apostrophe everything works fine.


Public Function SplitUsers()
    
    Dim RS As DAO.Recordset
    Dim Accts() As String
    Dim I As Integer
    Dim SQL As String
    
    Set RS = CurrentDb().OpenRecordset("ROI2")
    
    RS.MoveFirst
    Do Until RS.EOF = True
    
    
        If RS.EOF = True Then Exit Do '<-- may cause you to miss the last record.
        
        
        If InStr(1, Nz(RS![Zips Served], ""), ",") < 1 Then
            SQL = "INSERT INTO TblTempProcessing " & _
            "([Temp_ID], [Temp_Customer_Number], [Temp_Customer_Name], [Temp_Zip]) " & _

            Next I
        End If
        'Check next record
        RS.MoveNext
    Loop
    
    Set RS = Nothing
 
End Function
