Default combo box problems

I'm using dreamweaver mx with asp pages.the problem i have is my combo box does not display the whole text when the user selects the value in the combo box:(.i'm using ms-access database to populate data to combo box.this fields have qoutes in in between.my combo box cuts the text after the combo box. heres my code for getting data out from the table called criticality.

<td>*New Criticality Code:</td>
          <%Set newcritcode_data=db.Execute("Select * from tblcriticality order by description")%>
          <select name="cboNewcritCode">
          <option value="same"> Select new crit code</option>
          <%Do While Not newcritcode_data.EOF%>
          <option value="<%=newcritcode_data("name")%>"><%=newcritco de_data("description")&" - " &newcritcode_data("Name")%></option>
          Set newcritcode_data=nothing%>
the code gets data from the table criticality.it cuts the text in description field after the quotes.

Might be your description field contains single quate and hope you know that in ASP single quate is using for comments so when single quate comes in the discription field it is making comment after single quate.

Check your code is it containing quate or not?

Hope this will help you.
