Hi all

I have this application that will save date from mu MSHFlexgrid1 to my Microsoft Access dbase.

But every time that i have a name with ' (apostrophe) in the TextMatrix, ex: L'EXTRA, it cause an issue that it dont want to save it cause missing operation in query expression (Error syntax).

But if i remove the ', it same with no problem.

Would you know why and how i can fix this?

Thanks again for your help


Macro to svae the data
  Dim i As Long, strSQL As String
            Dim j As Long
            Dim MyConn As ADODB.Connection

            Set MyConn = New ADODB.Connection

            MyConn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;;Data Source=" & MDIForm1.dta_base_link_audit_tms.Text


            MyConn.Open


            With MSHFlexGrid1
                For i = .FixedRows To .Rows - 1
                    strSQL = "INSERT INTO " & Form3.rate_table_audit.Text & _

                    MyConn.Execute (strSQL)
                Next

You should escape apostrophes inside text values. If not, then Access understand that your text (String)  terminates on this apostrophe, as apostrophe is the character for limiting strings in Access.

For escaping a single quote (= apostrophe) in Access, you just have to add another apostrophe.

So you should change your .TextMatrix(i, xxx) by: replace(.TextMatrix(i,xxx), "'", "''")

Hope it helps. Regards.

HI

but if i replace(.TextMatrix(i,xxx), "'", "''") and my value in my textbox = L'EXTRA , would that just remove the apostrophe even if i need to keep it? My problem is that some cities have apostrophe and i need to keep it.

No, it won't remove it. It will change it by 2 apostrophes, which makes Access interpret a single apostrophe, because two apostrophes between apostrophes are interpreted by access as an apostrophe between apostrophes.

Just try it ;)

I updated the script to the below. I will test this and let you know about the result. So far, it works on Textmatrix 19 in both scenarios, with or without apostrophie

Sorry, but have you change the script?

I think you should do it like this:

            With MSHFlexGrid1
                For i = .FixedRows To .Rows - 1
                On Error GoTo save_sql
                    strSQL = "INSERT INTO " & Form3.rate_table_audit.Text & _

why i did it my way was because if i have an apostrophe, i will go to save_sql and use:
Replace(.TextMatrix(i, 19), "'", "''")

Open in new window



but if i dont have any apostrophe, it will use:
 
.TextMatrix(i, 19)

Open in new window


The thing is that if i replace when i don't have apostrophe, it was not transferring to Access properly.

if it doesn't have an apostrophe, you can still use replace, which will make no changes.

you could use a replace function to change the apostrophe characters into ASCII 146 characters, which would appear to display properly in your grid.  You would need to change these back to apostrophe, ASCII 39, characters when you saved the data.  If someone uses an apostrophe character in a grid search, you would need to have your code do the ASCII 146 replacement.
