    Quotes in text giving me a hassle when passing to next page


    I have some text (part description) that sometimes includes " to indicate inches. I pass that text via a URL and of course it gets cut off at the quote mark.

    Ok, i thought, I'll replace " with in to indicate inches in longhand. Well, I outsmarted myself as I've been unable to figure out how to do an instr search to see if " exists and then do a replace.

    I tried multiple ", tried chr(34), no luck.

    Looking for the right way to ESCape the " so that it gets looked at and and ultimately replaced in the string.

    Thanks in advance

    Much egg on face.

    Was checking the string in the wrong place.

    Those durn computers, they should know what we want, not what we tell them.
