    Default Re: Embedded Quotes

    Can you post the String that is causing that error, the statement that was executed when the exception was thrown and the full text of the error message?

    Do you know about the escape character: \? For example a String with an ending " -> "An embedded quote \""
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
