Betreff: [PHP-DB] Select Value with 's

This is a basic question but I am all messed up and need to be straightened
out..

Have a select field called customer that works great except when there is a
'  in the customer name.
Have tried addslash and stripslashes but I think I might be using them
wrong.

If I addslash to the select value, the value received but the result page is
truncated up to the point of
the '   .....

Can someone refresh me on the correct use of add and strip slashes...
please??

Thanks

Aleks
