Single Quotes And Double Quotes
I had a procdure in SQL 7.0 in which I am using both single quote and double quotes for string values. This proceudreused to work fine in SQL 7.0 but when I upgraded SQL 7.0 to SQL 2000, this proceudre stopped working. When I changed the double quotes to single quotes, it worked fine.

Any Idea why ??

BCP And Commas/double-quotes
Hello all,

I am using SQL Server 6.5 SP5a.

I have to use bcp to import two text files everyday for database update. The problem is that some of the character fields that are being imported have double-quotes and/or commas in them. When these are imported into the SQL Server tables additional double quotes are being added into these strings.



I have searched through BOL and have not been able to find any information.

Does anyone know what is causing this and if so how to correct it?

Losing Double Quotes??

I have written a little bit of VB.NET code that basically takes three strings, transforms them, and returns a single string to be stored in my table.

I am running into a strange problem, however... for some reason, a number of my processed rows are missing a pair of double quotes (").

The vast majority of the records are formatted properly, and have the double quotes in the expected locations.

The most frustrating thing about it is that I have included the offensive input strings in my Test.sql test script, and when I step through the entire routine, the return value is perfect...

i apologize for being the worst ever at posting questions here, please let me know if i can add anything

Double Quotes In CSV File
I have a lot of data coming in from CSV files.  I have many CSV files (~20), with varying amounts of data- but some are quite large (largest file is ~230mb)

I'm trying to import it into a SQL database via SSIS, but the data is a little bit frustrating. 

I have data that looks like this:

"Text from vendor ""Vendor Name, Inc."" blah blah", "Next string", "", 1234

Many things to notice here - as well you can imagine some of the difficulties here.

After parsing, this data should have 4 columns-

Column1                                                                          Column2              Column3               Column4

Text From Vendor "Vendor Name, Inc." blah blah      Next string            <blank>                1234

The biggest problems stem from the double quotes mixed in with the comma because it is a comma delimited file with quotes as the text qualifier.  The other problem is the double quotes with blank text ... which prevents me from doing a replace on the double quotes ... I think ...

What would be your suggestions to help me parse this out?  (don't forget, some of these are large files with about 260,000 records- )

Thanks in advance,

SP Parameter With Imbedded Double Quotes
From Access97 I need to execute a SQL 7.0 stored procedure that accepts several input parameters. A few of these are strings that can have imbedded single and/or double quotes (used as feet and inch identifiers). I've tried extra double quotes around the string, square brackets etc. in every combination that I can think of, with minimul success.

Can anyone provide the correct syntax?

Double Quotes In ASCII File
I've an issue with double-quotes in CSV file. One of the columns may contain this kind of value: "STATUS ""H"" "

I've got quote set to "

The file source fails on such records.

I found this threadand Scott tells us there that the file can't contain " in data.

Is this 100% correct?

I've got mutliple text columns and the pain is that I don't know which column might have these cases in future. To create a script means to write my own file parser for all files I use.

Any ideas?

Double Quotes In Error Messages!
I have a problem when trying to display an error message from sql server 2005 on a web page with an alert (javascript command).

The Sql server 2005 returns a message like:

Insert statement conflicted with foreign key constraint "bla bla". The conflict occured indatabase "databasename", table "tablename", column 'columnname'.

In sql server 2000 the error message is the same except all names (constraint, database, table) is in single quotation marks; just like the columnname in the above example.

Is it a configurable issue on the sql server. I would prefer not to solve this issue on a number of different web pages!

Thanks in advance.

BCP Output - Putting Double Quotes Around Text

How can I program BCP to output text items in double quotes (")?
Here is an example (please try it) that trys to output some columns from a table to csv file. However, due to the existence of commas within the fields, the comma separation gets messed up.


IF EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM sysobjects WHERE name = 'mcg1')


INSERT INTO mcg1 (Address_1, City) VALUES ('100 Road1, Suburb1' , 'BigCity1')
INSERT INTO mcg1 (Address_1, City) VALUES ('200 Road2, Suburb2' , 'BigCity2')


Exec Master..xp_Cmdshell 'bcp "SELECT Address_1, City FROM mcg1" queryout "C:mcg1.csv" -c -t,"'

The output I get is below. You can see how the use of commas in the text makes the comma separate list all confused
100 Road1, Suburb1,BigCity1
200 Road2, Suburb2,BigCity2

Thus what I want is
"100 Road1, Suburb1","BigCity1"
"200 Road2, Suburb2","BigCity2"

You can do this OK in DTS by specifying the text identifier to be double-quotes.
I do NOT want to use DTS and want to be able to do via a T-SQL procedure. Note that the real table I will export from has numeric datatypes and I would prefer NOT to wrap them in double-quotes too.

Thus, how can I alter the Exec Master..xp_Cmdshell command, to wrap each text field in double quotes. I may have to use a format file in which case please provide the format file too.

Thanks in advance

How To Handle Double Quotes In The Source CSV Files

Has anyone worked around this issue?

Trouble Importing Data With Double Quotes
I have to import a flat file with commas and double quotes as the text qualifier in a SSIS package. However, when I try to import the data into a table, the data moves the information to right, therefore, the last field will capture mulitple fields worth of data. When I create the Connection Manager for the flat file, I have the format as [Delimited] and Text qualifier as ["]. I do not check the unicode button, but under Advanced, make each field a Unicode string [DT-WSTR]. I have included a sample of my data below.

"Internal Sales Document ",9/23/2005 0:00,0.58,"STORES ISSUES","TAPE, PACKING, 2" X 55 YD, CLE ","EP0079771","US363800","2065431980"
"Internal Sales Document ",10/7/2005 0:00,3.76,"STORES ISSUES","Post-It Note Pads, 3"x3", Cana ","EP0079770","US363799","2065431980"

As I highlighted above, I will have a description field that will have double quotes and commas within the text before the end of field.

Please let me know if this is user error. Thanks,

Newbie Q: Inserting Strings With Single Or Double Quotes
Hi: Got a newbie question that's been giving me fits! Basically I'm replicating what's going on here on this board...creating a "posting" interface that takes the "message" and inserts it into a table using an ADODB connection (using INSERT INTO table name,tablecells and VALUES)

However, if someone types in a single or double quote in the body of the message, I get an error similar to this:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Line 1: Incorrect syntax near 's'.

/test.asp, line 29

I think I understand why it's happening (SQL is interpreting the quote mark as a string-end), but what am I supposed to do to get around it?

How To Import Flat Files With Single And Double Quotes Imbedded In Them?
I've got a flat file data source, that is to large to edit with most Windows apps on my server that contains both single and double quote characters that I need to load in a varchar column.

So I attempted to do it with a Replace in data transformation, but I can't get SSIS to allow me to use a variable or pair of single or double quotes within the replace.

If I don't replace the single quote characters with a pair then therecords containing these charactersall end up in my failed records output file.

Here are 5 example property legal descriptions from my FLAT FILE data source:

COM 441'6" N OF SW/C OF NW4 OF SEC 22-29-20 ELY1340' N200' CROSSING THE CNTR OF TR AT 100 WLY1240' S200' TO POB CONTAINING 6 3/10 ACRE MOL

Form Field Returns Name With Double Quotes Instead Of Single Quote During Update Process.
I've a weird problem in my application. In of the pages, while trying to update the text box "Name", when I enter Linda's test, it gets saved as Linda''s test. I'm not sure if this is a problem due to SQL server. When I look at the stored procedure, I don't anything different. Also, when I update the table directly in SQL Server, the result is displayed in single quote. But if I update the field thro' the application, the returned name is with double quotes instead of single quote.  Has any of you faced problems like this? What am I missing? What do I need to do to get the name saved the way I entered (with single quotes) instead of double quotes?

Trouble With Single Quotes
Hello Everyone!

I am having a problem with updating a password within a table. Below is the old and new password that needs to be updated.
New :"I+)#]*1#E,%R-''7^,TEA$X&^O_-68DIK,@

Below is the query that I am trying to run. I believe my problem is becuase of the Single Quotes found within both the old and new password.

I have tried to escape the single quotes, @local_variable, CHAR(39) and other ways of playing with the string. I cannot seem to find a solution.

If you were to ignore the update statement, the SELECT statement would return no results even though the PRINT statement displays the required data.
This is what baffles me and why I cannot run the UPDATE statement, becuase of course, nothing would be updated since no results were returned.

Can anyone offer their assistance?

Thank you in advance.

Handling Quotes And Apostraphies
I`m new to sql and am having trouble with updates. I`m trying to make a web page where people can enter text and have it submitted to the database. The problem is that I need to let people submit text with quotes (single and double). When my cgi generates the sql, the quotes cause problems with the dbms (ie. in the statement:

UPDATE mytable SET thetext = `This is Joe`s text.` WHERE user = `joe`

the apostraphy in "joe`s" is interpreted as meaning the end of the string to enter into "thetext" ). I expect that there`s some escape character that I don`t know about? I know this is a very basic question, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Using ODBC trace I cannot see the value being passed in the text field as it is displayed as a question mark e.g. ?.

How To INSERT A String That Contains Single-quotes?
My code results in SQL statements like the following one - and it gives an error because of the extra single-quotes in 'it's great': 
UPDATE Comments SET Comment='it's great' WHERE UserID='joe' AND GameID='503'
Here's the error I get when I try this code in SQL Server: 
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 1Incorrect syntax near 's'.Msg 105, Level 15, State 1, Line 1Unclosed quotation mark after the character string ''.
I need to know how I can insert a string such as 'it's great' - how do I deal with the extra quotes issue? is there a way to ecape it like this 'it/'s great' ? This doesn't seem to work.
Here's the code that generates the SQL. I'm using a FCKeditor box instead of a TextBox, but I got the same error when I was using the TextBox:
string strUpdate = "UPDATE Comments SET Comment='";strUpdate = strUpdate + FCKeditor1.Value;//strUpdate = strUpdate + ThisUserCommentTextBox.Text;strUpdate = strUpdate + "' WHERE UserID='";strUpdate = strUpdate + (string)Session["UserID"];strUpdate = strUpdate + "'";strUpdate = strUpdate + " AND GameID='";strUpdate = strUpdate + Request.QueryString["GameID"];strUpdate = strUpdate + "'";
SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection(...);SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand(strUpdate, myConnection);
try{myCommand.Connection.Open();myCommand.ExecuteNonQuery();}catch (SqlException ex){ErrorLabel.Text = "Error: " + ex.Message;
I'm using SQL Server 2005 and ASP.NET 2.0 
Much thanks

How To INSERT Text That Contains Single Quotes?
When users enter text into a textbox, to be INSERTed into my table, SQL Server throws an error if their text contains a single quote.
For example, if they enter "It's great!" then it causes this error:Error: Incorrect syntax near 's'. Unclosed quotation mark after the character string ''.
How can I allow text with single quotes to be inserted into the table?
Here's my code: 
string strInsert = "INSERT INTO [Comments] ([GameID], [UserID], [Comment]) VALUES (@GameID, @UserID, @Comment)";
SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection(<<myconnectionstuff>>);SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand(strInsert, myConnection);
myCommand.Parameters.Add( "@GameID", Request.QueryString["GameID"] );myCommand.Parameters.Add( "@UserID", (string)Session["UserID"] );myCommand.Parameters.Add( "@Comment", ThisUserCommentTextBox.Text );
try {myCommand.Connection.Open();myCommand.ExecuteNonQuery();}
catch (SqlException ex) {ErrorLabel.Text = "Error: " + ex.Message;}
finally {myCommand.Connection.Close();}
