I am dealing with displayName attribute in AD. I am dumping these names into an Oracle table. Some names have a single quote in them. For example – Jerry O'Brian
In my script I am using single quotes around the variable. Like this – '$displayName'
I tried using double quotes, two single quotes, tried different escape characters. Nothing worked. Any ideas?
I am hoping someone can help.
What command are you running that returns the error? What is the content of the error message? There's no particular issue with having a single quote in a string variable, but maybe the particular command you're running is balking at it, and you might need to do some error handling. Or maybe the database field has a problem with it?
Single quotas outside variable will convert the variable name into a String and not how double quotas shows you what's inside the variable.
