    Unhappy

    Hi all,

    I tried to insert into table with value containing character " ' ", and ran into error.

    **************************************************

    SQL> insert into test values(2,'I'm good','n','n','o1-Oct-02');
    ERROR:
    ORA-01756: quoted string not properly terminated

    **************************************************

    How can I insert alone with the character " ' "? Thanks for your help!

    Use two single quotes before the letter m.
    insert into test values(2,'I''m good','n','n','o1-Oct-02');

    I still have problem with the " ' ". Using " " " instead of " ' ",

    insert into test values(2,'I''m good.','n','n','01-Oct-02');

    if I do select * from test, it displays: I'm good. However, if I try to pull this data from web browser, it displays: I"m good. instead. Is there other way to insert this " ' "?

    Thanks.
