Access Lookup Problem

(OP)
I am having a problem with the following line


sql2 = "SELECT * FROM [wol] WHERE trim([Title]) = '" & Trim(TextBox4.Text) & "' and trim([publisher]) = '" & Trim(TextBox8.Text) & "' and trim([code]) = '" & Trim(TextBox7.Text) & "' and trim([composer]) = '" & Trim(TextBox9.Text) & "'"



The problem is The Textbox8.text is eg isn't it (for example)

ie the is a ' in the lookup

The program bombs out

is there a way of doing a lookup with a ' in texttbox i am using for the lookup


Appreciate any help

RE: Access Lookup Problem

First of all, I suggest you use stored procedures.
Second, you have to replace any single quote ("'") with double single quotes ("''")
