Not sure if this is the right place to ask. But here it goes. I'm using PHP
4.0.6 and trying to find a way to insert single quoted data. Some of the
values in the INSERT statement are single, double quoted, or use
backslashes. I cannot seem to use an escape character to input these special
characters into an Access database using ODBC. Here's the resulting error:

Warning: SQL error: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Syntax error
in query expression ''[\']hello[\']', SQL state 37000 in SQLExecDirect in
c:\inetpub\wwwroot\blah.php on line 23 INSERT INTO blah (id, title)  VALUES

The original string was [']hello[']. 
If you can help I would greatly appreciate it, if not could you direct me to
the appropriate place.
