I really wanted this "ini_set()" thing to work, but it still does not.
Thankyou for your help though John.   If you are curious to see what I am
seeing try this out on a windows server where magic_quotes is on...
// import variables into 'p_' space
import_request_variables('gp', 'p_');
$var = get_magic_quotes_gpc();
print "Magic Quotes = ". $var . "<br>";
<form name=myForm action=test.php method=post>
<input type="text" name="name" value="<?php echo $p_name; ?>">
<input type=submit value="submit">
Keep hitting submit

same for magic_quotes_sybase, which is what you really want, I think.
You'll probably need it on both the form page and the processing page. If
you have a config file that's included on every page, that'd be a good place
for it.

AHHH.  Now your're talking.  It is an IIS server, and Access database (yes -
escapes a quote with another quote).  Attempting to set the magic_quotes to
zero has had no effect - even if I check for it using get_magic_quotes_gpc()
and the value is in fact 0, the PHP engine still adds those dang slashes to
everything anyway!  
How do I use ini_set() ?  Like this? ...   ini_set(php_value
magic_quotes_gpc 0); 
like this?  ini_set("php_value magic_quotes_gpc 0");

You can use ini_set() in all of your scripts (or include file), or .htaccess
depending on your server. 
php_value magic_quotes_gpc 0 
Does Access escape it's quotes with an additional ' instead of an \ ? If so,
then you should look at magic_quotes_sybase. Turning it on will escape
strings with a ' instead of an \. It also can be set in .htaccess or
