Hello,

note : There is 1 (') in the beginng and end of the statement
it is getting harder when inside the inner sring there  is (")

The rule is simple: Each inner single quote needs to be doubled.
' select * from tbl where id = ''one'' and description = '''' '

Open in new window

This also shows how to state an empty string.

The number of single quotes to use can sometimes be rather confusing. To avoid the confusion, I find it a little easier to visualize the statement using ascii values. For example, the statement " select * from stores where store_name = 'ABC' " in an execute immediate statement could be written as -
execute immediate 'select * from stores where store_name = '||chr(39)||'ABC'||chr(39);
Another step I often take is to declare a variable to hold the sql statement then print it out before using the execute immediate.
declare
v_sql varchar2(255);
begin
v_sql := 'select * from stores where store_name = '||chr(39)||'ABC'||chr(39);
dbms_output.put_line(v_sql); ==> view the sql
--execute immediate v_sql ==> comment out until the sql is what you need
end;

Then after the sql has been verified, comment out the dbms_output statement and un-comment the execute immediate statement
