Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

    Need a tip -SQL query with googlemaps link


    I have an mySQL query to insert a google map link into a database. The problem is that because the URL have one ' (I don't know how to say the symbol name in english, sorry) the mySQL in PHPmyAdmin is giving me an error.

    I have here a short example of mine sqlquery:

    INSERT INTO `postos` ( `id` , `nome` , `contactos` , `morada` , `codigo` , `link` , `localidade` , `distrito` ) VALUES (NULL , 'd/'alia', 'd/'alia', 'd/'alia', 'd/'alia', 'd/'alia', 'd/'alia', 'd/'alia')

    please pay atention to d/'alia. I've tried with d'alia and it give the same error. How can I pass this symbol through?

    Thanks '''''

    If it was in MS SQL I would suggest you to replace single quotas with '' double quotes
    Perhaps you can try something like
    INSERT INTO postos (
    `id` , `nome` , `contactos` , `morada` , `codigo` , `link` , `localidade` , `distrito`
    ) VALUES (
    NULL , 'd''alia', 'd''alia', 'd''alia', 'd''alia', 'd''alia', 'd''alia', 'd''alia'

    or you can set the d'alia to a sql variable then use that variable within the insert statement

    I hope this helps

    if you're running this code through a php page, just add slashes to the variables before adding them to the database query
    $foo = "d'alia";
    $foo2 = addslashes($foo);
    INSERT INTO `postos` ( `id` , `nome` , `contactos` , `morada` , `codigo` , `link` , `localidade` , `distrito` ) VALUES (NULL , '$foo2', '$foo2', '$foo2', '$foo2', '$foo2', '$foo2', '$foo2');

    If you are running it through phpmyadmin, use the forward slash instead of the backslash:

    'd/'alia' Becomes:
