I have two update scripts below, the first one works fine, but the second one is to replace an apostrophe with the unicode characters. I get an error on the second one, I assume the syntax is incorrect, can I get help with that ?

UPDATE dbo.CatalogDocuments
Set    Document = replace(Document, '"', '"')
WHERE Document IS NOT NULL AND Document <> ''


UPDATE dbo.CatalogDocuments
Set    Document = replace(Document, "'", '&apos;')
WHERE Document IS NOT NULL AND Document <> ''
