    Default Replacing " with Anything

    I have tried and tried to replace " in a string with no luck. Any suggestions
    would be most appreciated. The string is "D: "

    Tried:
    <cfset L2_displayvolume = #Trim(Replace('#L1_displayvolume#', "'Chr(34)'",
    "X", "All"))#>
    and tried:
    <cfset L2_displayvolume = #Replace('#L1_displayvolume#', "'Chr(34)'", "X",
    "All")#>
    and tried:
    <cfset L2_displayvolume = #Trim(Replace(L1_displayvolume, #Chr(34)#, "X",
    "All"))#>
    and tried:
    <cfset L_displayvolume = Trim(Replace('#L_displayvolume#', '#Chr(34)#',
    "X", "All"))>
    and several others I lost count of.

    Default Re: Replacing " with Anything

    Here is something from an application I did a while back
    <cfset inputText = '"D"'>
    <cfoutput>inputText = #inputText# </cfoutput>
    <cfset outText = REReplaceNoCase(#inputText#,"([#chr(34)#]+)","?","ALL")>
    <cfoutput>outText = #outtext# </cfoutput>

    You can add other special characters into your your search string also e.g.
    <cfset outText =
    REReplaceNoCase(#inputText#,"([#chr(34)##chr(35)##chr(36)##chr(37)#]+)","?","ALL
    ")>
