Hi - I have a dyn. sql statement (I need it because of sorting for datagrid in .net). I have everything working except I am stuck on:

WHERE 1=1 AND status <> 'closed'

I'm unsure how to handle the quotes around closed? I tried to double quote, but that didn't seem to work. Any ideas....anyone?

Thanks for any help you can provide

Try this
status <> '''closed'''

You need to escape a single qoute with another singleqoute
