Replacing Quotation marks in SQL

1 New Member

I came across this site while looking for a function to replace Quotation marks in SQL.

This is my code.

<!-- Begin Code -->

Intro = Replace(Intro," '","''")
Text = Replace(Text,"' ","''")

SQL = "Insert Into Articles(Author Id,CatId,Topsto ryId,Headline,S ubheadline,Intr o,Text) Values ('" & Request("Author Id") & "','" & Request("CatId" ) & "','" & Request("TopSto ryId") & "','" & Request("Headli ne") & "','" & Request("Subhea dline") & "','" & Intro & "','" & Text &"')"

<!-- End Quote -->

Now the problem I have is that when I execute my sql server statement no value is written in the database for Intro and Text, can anyone see where I am going wrong?

Text could be a reserved word, use other var name instead, i.e. strText:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Intro = Replace(Intro,"'","''") 
  2. strText = Replace(strText,"'","''")
  4. SQL = "Insert Into Articles 
  5.      (AuthorId, CatId, TopstoryId, Headline, Subheadline, Intro, [Text]) 
  6.     Values ('" & Request("AuthorId") & "','" & 
  7.              Request("CatId") & "','" & 
  8.                            Request("TopStoryId") & "','" & 
  9.              Request("Headline") & "','" & 
  10.               Request("Subheadline") & "','" & 
  11.              Intro & "','" & 
  12.               strText & "')"

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.

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.

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
