Public Function fix_characters(ByVal strValue As String) As String
    Dim temp As String
    temp = Replace(strValue, "'", "")
    temp = Replace(temp, ":", "")
    temp = Replace(temp, ",", "")

thanks,

this works ok now:

Code:
''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
' Replace all problematic characters with ""
'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
Public Function fix_characters(ByVal strValue As String) As String
    fix_characters = Replace(strValue, "'", "")
    fix_characters = Replace(strValue, ":", "")
    fix_characters = Replace(strValue, ",", "")
    fix_characters = Replace(strValue, """", "")
    fix_characters = Replace(strValue, "`", "")
End Function

I will *very* surprised if that works... please check the code we sent you.
Look at your code: strValue is never changed, and fix_characters is assigned at the end, thus only the "`" will be removed.
