Export Issue with Quotes in Database - HeidiSQL Problem

Konstantinosstath's profile image Konstantinosstath posted 5 months ago in Import/Export Permalink

I have a problem when I export my database with a table because HeidiSQL uses single quotes (' ') instead of double quotes (" ") and when it exports then I get the problem you see in the photo. The issue stems from the fact that within our tables, we utilize single quotes (' '), which can cause confusion with the single quotes (' ') used in the database. is there any setting for this?

Well, MySQL accepts both single quotes and double quotes, while single quotes are preferred because I think they comply better to ANSI SQL.

What's exactly the problem? Is it just your highlighter which is confused or...?

what I mean is that in my database I use single brackets ' ' and when the export also uses the same single brackets and it messes up the whole format and comes out useless, and I was wondering if there is a way to export them using " "

No, HeidiSQL always uses single quotes for values.

Single quotes within a quoted value are escaped using a backslash:

If your editor would understand the escaping your problem was solved.

Ah ok now that you told me I got it I thought it was wrong and it wouldn't work because vsCode didn't understand it. I also did a test and it worked normally, so I assumed that my question - my problem was solved, thank you very much!!!
