Adding "'s to a $_POST value? - PHP Development

Hi, I'm a bit of a newbie to php. I have some values that I'm getting via the post method which I want to include in an sql statement - the problem is I need to enclose the value in "'s but I dont know how. e.g $id = $_POST["id"]; so, if $id = monkey I want to turn it into "monkey" Any help much appreciated - I'm sure it's something obvious and I'm just being thick....

    Default Adding "'s to a $_POST value?

    Hi,

    I'm a bit of a newbie to php.

    I have some values that I'm getting via the post method which I want to
    include in an sql statement - the problem is I need to enclose the value in
    "'s but I dont know how.

    e.g $id = $_POST["id"];

    so, if $id = monkey I want to turn it into "monkey"

    Any help much appreciated - I'm sure it's something obvious and I'm just
    being thick.
