Does anybody know how to build an insert statement to insert any text with apostrophes without knowing where the apostrophes are? or even if there are apostrophes?

some of my data gets kicked out as 'string not properly terminated' errors bec. of apostrophes.

Hi Trevor,
Suppose you want to insert " Trevor's " in table which has one column named a.
I think you are are inserting like :
Insert into table_name(a) values('Trevor's');

Instead of that if you give two single quote in the place of one single quote, then it works. ex.
Insert into table_name(a) values('Trevor''s');

Try this.
