I don't understand why I sometimes get errors when I try to add a word with an apostrophe into a database and other times I don't. In both instances, it is using the same form field being entered into the same DB field. I am using the objRec.Fields = Request.Form("name") method. I have been told that the best way to get around this is to convert any single apostrophe into a double one when entering it and then when reading it back, to remove one of the apostrophes. There must surely be a better way of doing this!<BR><BR>I would appreciate any help<BR><BR>Anthony Lane.
