Dear Friends,
i want to pass '(apostrophy) character to the database hence,i use following code,
String mystr="let's find out what's going on";
char c='\'';
char c1='\\'+'\'';
but above code had one problem since one character can be replaced by only one character,how can i replace in above ' by \' in above string.
Thanking you,
Jim Yingst
