Apostrophe Problem When Adding To DB

I currently have a simple html page that consists of a text box and submit button. A user supplies a quote in the text box and presses the submit button. When the submit button is pressed the quote is added to a ‘Quote’ table in an MS Access database.

This works perfectly well, however if a quote contains an apostrophe, such as … this won’t work… It will not add to the database. If I had typed in …this wont work… It would be added to the database with no problems. Code:

Using Patterns And Practices

I have a asp webapp that must use a .net dll (with com wrapper) that in turn
uses the patterns and practices libraries (june 2005 version) to access to
the database.My asp webapp can properly instantiate the c# dll, but I do not know how to
set the data needed to access the db. In I can add the configuration
info to web.config, pointing to a dataconfiguration.config and all works fine.
How can I put the needed info in the ASP configuration?
If it is not possible to do so, how can I set a single configuration file
for the enterprise library, provided that their dll are in GAC and that the
can be called from c# exe, webapps and asp webapps and all of them
should share a single configuration?

I’ve a form with a textbox called Message. When visitor enters text, I use Replace function to handle an apostrophe code that will receive the text and store in the database.
It works fine.
When I try to retrieve the text message, it doesn’t show what I’ve in the DB, but it displays, for example: I?m. It supposes to display as “I’m”

I did try:
<%message= Replace(trim(RS("message")),"'","''")%>

Apostrophe Replacement

I know this is a very commonly asked question, but I can't find a solution
anywhere that I have looked.

I need to take the text that will be typed in paragraph form by the user
(textarea field) and do two things with it:

1. Store it in a SQL Server database field
2. Send it in an email upon page submit.

Of course, single quotes have caused problems, so I have this code:
strInternalDesc =

Problem is, it shows up like this in the email that is sent:
We''re in the process of

I would like to get rid of the double apostrophes, but not sure how. Went to
an article on ASPFAQ, and saw something which directed me to do this:

strInternalDesc =

However, that just makes it a regular double-quote. I guess I could try and
find out what the character number for apostrophes are, but not sure where
that is. Besides, will that mess up my SQL Server or the email if I do that?

Best Way To Handle An Apostrophe

I know a few ways to handle an apostrophe, but am at a loss for which i should use for this. The ways I know how to deal with it are.

alias = Replace(Request.form("alias"), "'", "''")
alias = Replace(Request.form("alias"), "'", " & #39; ")

The name of the field is self explanitory. When the admin searches for a person using the "'" , " ' ' " method they find the user. But when ever we display that info anyware it has the O''conner setup. Code:

I have a text search which reads a textfile and displays each line that has a value the user is searching for. It's practically finished except when it searchs it doesn't look for exact matches (e.g a searh for Ali would return Alison or Alice).

How would i go about using RegEx's to prevent this by making the search look for the exact word entered? Code:

I have this pattern to filter out bad words

regx.Pattern = "darn|dick|swear|blahblah"

it works, but in case of the word "dickinson"
the wordfilter also replaces dick in dickinson d***inson,

so i thought i could try this pattern

regx.Pattern = "darn|dick|swear|blahblah"

but no change, i've tested the regex with a similar PHP script and the  operator works.

any clues why it wont work in asp?

I am trying to do some custom forum code, like using [ b ] as a tag and replacing it later using RegEx. The problem is, its not replacing quite right. Its leaving in the []s and its not closing some of the tags.

Here is my pattern: "[ b ]((.|
)*?)[/ b ]"
Here is my replace text: "<b>$1</b>"

Here is some sample text: "yada yada yada [ b ]hey![/ b ] yada yada"

Now, another thing, I would like it to close tags if they aren't closed properly. Is this possible?

VBScript RegEx

I made a regular expression to match Guitar Chords.


This pattern should find any of the following:

1) G
2) Gmaj
3) G7
4) G#
5) Gb
6) G#min

The pattern works for all of these except for #4. For some reason it will only return the 'G' instead of the full 'G#'. I find this very odd because if the chord is 'Gb', the regex will return the full 'Gb'.This pattern works fine in javascript. Is there anything special with the '#' character in RegEx for VBScript? I am using VBscript engine 5.6

RegEx Problems

I'm using regular expressions to identify in a string an url ad format it in hyperlink.

The problem is that in the same string should be bbcodes and the [url] one tooo... so when the regexp will format the code will format the one in bbcode too.

The solution would be the lookaround function of RegEx to see if behind the match there is the [url] code... but it's not implemented in VisualBasicScript. Is there any way to use this function in my script ?

i have text, in it i want to highlight the words user used to find this result.
i used the normal replace, it worked fine except the case thing..

SearchForSp = Split(SearchFor, " ")
For i = 0 to Ubound(SearchForSp)
EmpJobsText = Replace(EmpJobsText, SearchForSp(i), "<strong><u><font
color=red>"&SearchForSp(i)&"</font></u></strong>", vbTextCompare)

i tried to use the regEx.Repalce from the examples in groups but just couldn't find a way. problem is in the normal replace function i have option to supply a source. in this case "EmpJobsText" is the source. but regEx.Repalce don't seem to have place to type where to replace, only what to replace with what.
