Hi all,

I want to escape double quotes passing from a string into a stored procedure.. here is the actual query i used to escape double quotes but nothing seems to work,


*************
SELECT * FROM TABLE
WHERE
USER_FIRSTNAME LIKE +'%'+'"'+@ss+'"'+'%'
or USER_LASTNAME LIKE +'%'+'"'+@ss+'"'+'%'
or TITLE LIKE +'%'+'"'+@ss+'"'+'%'

********************

@ss is the string which has double quotes and using a like operator.

Appreciate your help.
thanks

Did you try using teh ESCAPE clause?

From BOL:
match_expression [ NOT ] LIKE pattern [ ESCAPE escape_character ]

Example:
SELECT c1 
FROM mytbl2
WHERE c1 LIKE '%10-15!% off%' ESCAPE '!'
