Need help printing " double quotes

    I've got the following code... I need the number to be in "double
    quotes", not 'single quotes'

    so it will look like this when it prints:

    UPDATE TableName SET ColumnName =
    'x'+Right(ColumnName,Len(ColumnName)-1) WHERE (ColumnName=
    "021615039");


    any ideas? here's the code:

    Option Compare Database

    Public Sub buildSQL()
    Open "C:\UpdateUSAAID\1.txt" For Input As #1
    Open "C:\UpdateUSAAID\excludeListSQL.txt" For Output As #2

    Do While Not EOF(1)

    Line Input #1, excludeMember

    Print #2, "UPDATE TableName SET ColumnName =
    'x'+Right(ColumnName,Len(ColumnName)-1) WHERE (ColumnName = '" &
    excludeMember & "');"


    Loop
    Close #1
    Close #2
    End Sub



    Thanks!

    Replace each apostrophe with TWO double quotes:

    Print #2, "UPDATE TableName SET ColumnName =
    'x'+Right(ColumnName,Len(ColumnName)-1) WHERE (ColumnName = """ &
    excludeMember & """);"

    I figured it out, thanks though.... code looks like this in case you
    care.
    Print #2, "UPDATE TableName SET ColumnName =
    'x'+Right(ColumnName,Len(ColumnName)-1) WHERE (ColumnName = '""" &
    excludeMember & "'"");"

    Use the Chr function:
    Print #2, "UPDATE TableName SET ColumnName =
    'x'+Right(ColumnName,Len(ColumnName)-1) WHERE (ColumnName = '" &
    Chr(34) &
    excludeMember & chr(34) & "');"

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!
