Quick Tips


Single Quotes Work Fine With ADO

In our last tip we discussed one of the limitations of using the single quote (') character in your SQL strings. While doubling up the character has become the norm for a lot of programmers, there are times when it's not neccessary and will cause improper text to be inserted into your database.

When using the native ADO methods for dealing with your recordsets there is no need to double up your single quote characters. For instance, this code is perfectly valid and won't cause any quote related problems when executed:

rst.AddNew
rst.Fields("quote").Value = "Here's a sample."
rst.Update

While this should by no means be a reason to change the way you access your database, it is something that needs to be kept in mind. Twice as many quotes isn't always a good thing!
