Below is how i have my dynamic sql: I am inserting the values into the field through the import process. Out of 1000 records in a file, for 300 of them i had apostrophe. Below sql is working only if the value doesn't have apostrophe.

declare @SQL as nvarchar(1000)
set @SQL = N'exec USP_TABLE_ADD @ID=''' + CAST(@ID as nvarchar(100)) + ''', @VALUE=''' + @VAL + ''''
exec sp_executesql @SQL

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Sam

Try this:

SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER OFF

declare @SQL as nvarchar(1000)
set @SQL = N'exec USP_TABLE_ADD @ID='"' + CAST(@ID as nvarchar(100)) + '"', @VALUE='"' + @VAL + '"''
exec sp_executesql @SQL

You need to use REPLACE function like this
declare @SQL nvarchar(1000)
DECLARE @id INT;
DECLARE @val NVARCHAR(100);

SET @id = 10
SET @val = 'a''bc'
set @SQL = N'exec USP_TABLE_ADD @ID=''' + CAST(@ID as nvarchar(100)) + ''', CAST(@VALUE as nvarchar(100))=''' + REPLACE(@VAL, '''' , '''''') + ''''
PRINT @sql

exec sp_executesql @SQL

-- And your code would be

declare @SQL nvarchar(1000)
set @SQL = N'exec USP_TABLE_ADD @ID=''' + CAST(@ID as nvarchar(100)) + ''', CAST(@VALUE as nvarchar(100))=''' + REPLACE(@VAL, '''' , '''''') + ''''
exec sp_executesql @SQL

Follow another version of my previous code:

SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER OFF

declare @SQL as nvarchar(1000)
set @SQL = N'exec USP_TABLE_ADD @ID="' + CAST(@ID as nvarchar(100)) + '", @VALUE="' + @VAL + '"'
exec sp_executesql @SQL
