Can't remove single quote

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Can someone tell me why this code won't replace single quotes with a pair of single quotes?

	Dim sFldVal
	Set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
	sql = "SELECT Comments FROM GrdbkRprtStdnts ORDER BY Comments"
	rs.Open sql, conn, 1, 2
	Do While Not rs.EOF
		sFldVal = rs(0).Value

		If Not sFldVal & "" = "" Then 
			sFldVal = Replace(sFldVal, "'", "''")
			rs(0).Value = sFldVal
		End If
	Set rs = Nothing

Open in new window

Everytime I run into a single quote it throws an ole db error...:
