Single Quotes ( ‘ ) !?! And other Illegal Characters

Guys,

We used to have this problem when developing our applications that’s using SQL Database, as the single quotation used to cause un-handled exception upon inserting the record to the database as it cause miss in string formatting.

However, we used to handle such issues with replacing the single quotation ( ‘ ) with the other single quotation ( ` ) with ASCII code of 44, now with GP the issue is here as well! checkout below Mariano and Davids Posts on this subject and their available workarounds:
