Single and Double Quotes

In an XQuery statement how do you filter single and double quotes for the parameters that are passed.

Currently I’m enclosing my parameters in single quotes because when I build the statement in C# I use double quotes to create the query string.

For example if somebody was looking in the database for a movie like {A Bug’s Life} or {Movie “Nick Name” Title}. Any suggestions would be helpful.


You can represent embedded single or double quotes by using their respective character references, e.g.

  • 'A Bug&apos;s Life'</pre><LI><pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">"Movie "Nick Name" Title"
