    Is there a way (an escape character) to get a tick in the selection criteria without getting the error:
    "ORA-01756 quoted sting not properaly teminated"?


    For example
    select 'Ted's assignment' from dual;
    Don't blame me, I'm from Red Sox Nation.

    Use two single tics to escape it.

    Code:
    select 'Ted''s assignment' from dual;
