The Logparser throws an error when ever the string has a single quotes with in it. sample code SELECT To_lowercase(cs-uri-stem) as URL, count(URL), MAX(Date) FROM '[LOGFILEPATH]' WHERE URL LIKE 'String's url' AND cs-username is not NULL GROUP BY URL the script works fine if the string has no single quotes in it. but i am not sure how can i make this work if it has a single quotes in the string. can anyone help me out?
