your question is not very clear, what do you want to do precisely?

do you want to update all your tables so that quotes are removed?
if yes, then use this:

update yourtablename set yourfieldname=replace(yourfieldname,"'","")

Open in new window

if you're inserting new rows using sql, then use:
insert into yourtablename(field1, field2) values(1, 'mc''donalds') 

Open in new window

<<notice the double single quotations

if you're reading rows, then don't worry about the values because access will handle escaping the single quotes.

Using this should replace a single quote with a zero length string

Replace(Sn, "'", "", 1)

In my example you need to put something else in the place of Sn, and this is where VBA will look for the quotes - it could be a string variable.
