I just started using MySQL. I've been creating a table called quotes. one of the columns consists of quotes. From reading the MySql tutorial it says the syntax to use is '"here is my quote"'
but when I have an apostrophe, it interprets it as a one of the single quotes. Is there some sort of escape character for this in SQL?
