    Unanswered: Single quote in machine name

    Hi everyone -

    Here is the setup -

    new install, same old software

    only difference is the machine name has
    a single quote (apostrophy) in the name...
    xyz's

    Now - a portion of the application is failing -
    the starting of the application runs ok,
    and the system is indeed seeing the database
    (it allowed the user to log in)
    so the connection string seems to be ok - just in that
    one part...


    does anyone know if the machine name with an embedded
    apostrophy will cause the ADO connection string to puke???

    vb6
    MSDE

    thanks
    tony
