    Problems with Apostrophe

    Hi Guys,
    I'm using HS2 but hope you can help me here anyway.
    I found a partial answer in the mcs sprinker section, but it was not ecouraging.

    I am writng values to a mdb database. The HAI plug-in assigned my counter values with an '. And yes there are 99 of them. It would be difficult to re-assign the entire HAI system and homeseer doesn't provide a way to re-assign HAI system values. so I am hopeful you guys can help.

    objRS("fan") = hs.devicevalue("'20")
    objRS("fan") = hs.devicevalue("'''20")
    objRS("fan") = hs.devicevalue("'"&"20")
    objRS("fan") = hs.devicevalue(chr(39)&"20")

    all do not work and will not record a value.

    objRS("fan") = hs.devicevalue("_20") or ("]20") or ("#20") all do work in my script.

    Trying to retire, I was hoping to find time to get all this stuff up and running again. After weeks assigning names & values I ran in to this issue.

    Is it back to square 1 ?
    Thanks in advance,
    Paul

    The problem you are running into is that visual basic treats an apostrophe as a comment character, so it disregards everything after it on the line.

    The only alternative I can think of is to use DeviceValueByName instead. It will be tedious to change, but copy/paste will help reduce the typing. Note: the device name consists of the location and the device name itself.

        Good point. But if the HC is really ` and not ', then the solution may be just being sure to use the ` in the devicevalue() argument. That could be fixed using find/replace I think.

          It could but I was just highlighting which character code it was.

            Thanks

            Thanks Jon & Michael,
            It was in fact the "tick"? rather than apostrophe.
            change to ` was all it needed.
            Feeling a little dumb for not noticing, but overjoyed that it worked !
            Old people should probably wear their glasses more often
            On to the next project.
            Thanks
            Paul
