When I insert a word in mySQL which contains a single quote, I escape it using addslashes($word);

When I do an export of my database I get this:

VALUES (2, 'kleuter', 'Gods\\'' dienst',

When I try to get it out of the database I don't get any results using:

SELECT * FROM `uitgaven` WHERE leermiddel='Gods\' dienst'

It looks like mysql escapes the \ and the quote seperately???

How can I get this to work?

Thanks a lot!

Try using mysql_real_escape_string on your variables when you insert them, instead of addslashes.
