with a person's name having a ' in it. For example, say I have a person updating a form where the first name is equal to O'BRIAN (see the single apostrophe). <BR><BR>update test<BR>set first_name = '" & request("first_name") & "'"<BR><BR>I get the error: quoted string not properly terminated. I need to enter this first name into the oracle db like this, does anyone have a quick fix or an example that they have done like this before. It probably is something easy, I just have never encountered it!!
