Are Inch marks possible in a table/form?

    I'm designing a database for a daylilly grower. I want to include a field in
    a table that indicates the grown plant height and another for bloom size. I
    have tried to insert a default value of 1" in design view, but I get an error
    message that says that my expression has an invalid string--I assume because
    of the inch (quotation) mark.

    I've also tried to do a Lookup Table with different measurements (6" etc),
    but the drop-down list includes a semicolon after the inch mark.

    Is there a way to include the inch mark (quotation mark) in a field without
    triggering an error message or getting extra symbols?

    As default field value in a Text datatype field:

    "1"""

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
