I'm not a 100% sure about Access but for MS-SQL you can use this on the insert. You may have to use this in conjunction with Chris' solution.

Replace([text value],"'","''")

This ends up writing only one single quote into the table cell.


INSERT INTO Table1 (TheVar) VALUES ('This is the single ''apple'' and double "quotes" test')

Actual data in the table cell:

This is the single 'apple' and double "quotes" test
