When I select a string with " ' "  , causes an error in the receiving aspx page.

For example names with " '" like O'hare, O'toole results to an error. How would I parse it?

The error happens when I pass it to the next page using Response Redirect and add the string as a parameter.

You have to url encode the value of the parameter

Response.Redirect("MyPage.aspx?Name=" & Server.UrlEncode("O'Brian"))
