Replacing quotation marks

The following removes any unwanted apostrophes before being inserted
into an sql database:

Articletext = replace(article Text,"'","''")

..but if I need to remove all quotation marks, this doesnt work:

Articletext = replace(article Text,""","''")

"" = empty string
""" = empty string + extra "

To place a " into a string use "".

Your code would then be:
Articletext = replace(article Text,"""","''")
or alternately:
Articletext = replace(article Text,CHR(34),"' '")

You need to double-up apostrophes to stop them interfering with the
delimiters needed around textual column contents - why do you need to
double-up quotes?

I need to assign a string to a variable but the text string includes quotation marks: Example: MyString = "He turned and said "Hello" before leaving." When the compiler hits the quotation marks in front of Hello, it assumes the string is over and generates and error on the remainder. I must use the double quotes " in my string and not the single ' so that isn't an option. How can I avoid this? Thanks in advance from a noob thrasher!

One disadvantage of using a simple text editor to produce HTML is that it is relatively time-consuming to put in the proper typographical quotation marks and dashes. A round tuit having arrived on my desk, I've produced a couple of sed scripts to automatically convert the 'typewriter' equivalents: http://www.xs4all.nl/~sbpoley/webmatters/proper_quotes.html I've tested them fairly thoroughly, but I'd be grateful if a few other

Greetings. Do any popular browsers correctly support <q>, at least for Western languages? I've noticed that Mozilla uses the standard English double-quote character, ", regardless of the lang attribute of the HTML document. Will any browsers render German-style quotes or French-style guillemots for lang="de" and lang="fr", respectively? Regards, Tristan

Hi. For many years I have been using &quot; for double quotation marks in the HTML code, but the opening and closing quotation marks render the same in my browser. I'm considering going through and using &ldquo; and &rdquo; (in pairs as needed) instead. Are there any *disadvantages* to doing so, besides the time it will take to make the change? Thanks.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
