Regex for replacing a single-quote with two single-quotes

I’m running into an issue that I think is being caused by needing to double-up on some single quotes inside a string. However, JS’s string.replace uses RegEx, and I’ve never built a RegEx by hand.

Can someone help me build a RegEx to find a single quote and replace it with two single quotes?

Answer

Try this:

yourstring = yourstring.replace(/'/g, "''")
