Fix Single Quotes in a SQL Statement

The following will replace all single quotes in a SQL statement [CHR(39)] with an apostrophe [CHR(180)]. This is useful if you are trying to add names to a database as parameter values or using inline SQL.

The SQL statement Insert Into tablename(fldName) Values (SomeValue) will fail for values like O'Tool. If you use the Replace command Replace("O'Tool",Chr(34),Chr(180)), the SQL statement will succeed with the new value of O.
