VBA replace function gives "Invalid use of null" error
Posted on 2013-11-11
The following text field is loaded into a variable.
When I use the replace function to fix the apostrophe in the string I get the null error above
The apostrophe needs to be set to '' so I can use it to insert into another table.
This replace method has worked on other text field types.
Text data in variable p_sibio

p_s1bio = Replace(p_s1bio, "'", "''")
Error: invalid use of null pointing to the replace statement
Any suggestions to resolve this error or is there something else in the data string I am not seeing?
