How can I get around special characters such as periods, commas, quotes, dashes, etc. crashing when I try and insert them into the database?<BR><BR>I'm designing a forum and user need to use periods & so forth.
use Server.HTMLEncode(TheMessage)<BR><BR>a Replace(TheMessage,"'","''") will get those "'" out of ur way as well.<BR><BR>Mauricio C.<BR><BR>
I see what you mean, but actually i want to keep these characters with the message and insert them into an Access database! I tried it that way and it didn't work. I also wanna keep hard returns!
