All,
I have a string that contains a single quote in it (EX:  Master's).  I need to evaluate a data item value to that string.  The problem is that the special character used to define string value is the single quote (').  Is there a way for me to evaluate this string as is without having to temporarily strip out the character to do the evaluation.  If not what is the simplest way to do the evaluation?  Thanks.
