Hi thanks for your response.I have another database which has a table and I have text witin the table which consists of quote marks, I am able to view the data from the other database with no problem.

The database I am having problems with is the phpbb forum, to be more exact it is the table which contains all the text data. When I try to get data from the table every single and double quote is replaced by a ? mark symbol, does any one know much about magic quotes may be that could be the problem, I have tried reviewing the php file for the phpbb forum (viewtopic.php) which displays messages to see how the code gets the data from the database, I havnt found anything in the file that gives a hint as to what it could be.
