Look at the RDBM's character escape sequence, or you might consider using a prepared statement with the respective driver and this should be taken care of auto-magically.

Hi.

The best approach is use the PreparedStatment as George Stoianov pointed out.

using the setString method will let the driver use the correct method to escape the symbol.

Regards.
