FilewriteLine("filename", '"')

certainly difficult to read it is a ' followed by " followed by '.

That second manner to protect string.

THe idea is when you need one inside you use the other to protect :whistle:

Since quotes can be tricky, I tend to use Chr(34) to insert double quotes:

FileWriteLine($FileHandle, "Quoted text follows:  " & Chr(34) & "Hello" & Chr(34))

If you forget chr():

$q='"'
$q2="'"
MsgBox(1,"...and he said",$q2&"Quotes are fun" & $q2 &@CRLF& $q &"Quite fun" &$q)
