How to imbed apostrophe inside a string?

The following Microsoft SQL Server T-SQL code samples demonstrate the usage of double apostrophes/single quotes and CHAR(39) to represent an apostrophe inside a string which is enclosed in single quotes. Apostrophe is the same as single quote.

-- Double up apostrophes/single quotes or use char(39) in concatenation

SELECT * FROM Northwind.dbo.Products

WHERE ProductName='Chef Anton''s Gumbo Mix'

------------

SELECT * FROM Northwind.dbo.Products

WHERE ProductName='Chef Anton'+CHAR(39)+'s Gumbo Mix'

------------

 

-- Place two apostrophes in the string to replace a single apostrophe

SELECT 'That''s the right amount on the John Deere tractor''s invoice.'

-- That's the right amount on the John Deere tractor's invoice.

GO

-- Using local string variable

DECLARE @string varchar(256) =

 'That''s the right amount on the John Deere tractor''s invoice.'

SELECT @string

-- That's the right amount on the John Deere tractor's invoice.

GO

 

-- Using char(39) - single quote - concatenation

DECLARE @string varchar(256) =

 'That'+CHAR(39)+'s the right amount on the John Deere tractor'+CHAR(39)+'s invoice.'

SELECT @string

-- That's the right amount on the John Deere tractor's invoice.
