access 2010 vba  sql  update statement
I'm trying to run a sql update but one of my variables may contain a apostrope.


code...
R![csg_email_address] = empEM



my_sql = "Update Step1_ADD_Parent_to_SATA_P2 SET [am_arm_racf] = '" & Uid & "', " & _
         "[AM_ARM_FName] = '" & empFN & "', " & _
         "[AM_ARM_LNAME] = '" & empLN & "', " & _
         "[csg_email_address] = '" & empEM & "' " & _
         "where [0BPARTNER] like '" & PntnChild & "*' "

CurrentDb.Execute my_sql, dbFailOnError

Open in new window




This line may contain an apostrope     "empEM" =   JAMES O'KEEFE
my UPDATE statement dies on execute.

I need to handle the apostrope.



Thanks

Change this line
 "[csg_email_address] = '" & empEM & "' " &
To
 "[csg_email_address] = '" & replace(empEM,"'","''") & "' " &
