slBuildInsertOrUpdate question

I use the slBuildInsertOrUpdate function.
The question I have is embedded single quotes. Will the slBuildInsertOrUpdate function already handle embedded single quotes or do I need to 'double' them myself.
If my understanding is correct I only need to 'double' the single quote is when I am writing my own sql statement.

Yes, slBuildInsertOrUpdate will handle embedded single quotes:
QuoteAlpha values will have all embedded single quotes changed to two single quotes and they will be enclosed within single quotes.  If an alpha value is already enclosed in single quotes then it will NOT be modified.

Hmm.... Has anyone tested this lately?  I'm using a slBuildInsertOrUpdate call that builds the parameters using a few string variables.  One of them contained a string with an embedded single quote and it did not get escaped/doubled.  It caused the resulting SQL statement to be FUBARed.

Oh heck.  Nevermind.  The problem wasn't in slBuildInsertOrUpdate.  I was calling slSelStr after my insert and I need to manually escape the single quotes in that call.
