    inserting the '&' Symbol into a column

    Hi,

    I need to insert a columns with
    the below value through sql.

    'TEmCO TRADING & CONTRACTORS'

    As it contains the & symbol, it is not inserting the same,
    but I need that symbol also to be inserted.


    For your information, one of my developer told
    that one of his record is not inserted through asp,
    which contains the 'FOR' in a command column value.

    Any idea how to solve the above two cases?

    Thanks
    Giri
