Help: Omitting quotes from SQL Queries.

Hi All,

I am using an mx.ODBC connection to MSSQL and am iterating through a
list to get data from the DB, for eg:

for fileName in fileNameList:
        cursor.execute("SELECT fileSize FROM database where
        database.filename = '%s'" % fileName)
        fileSizes = cursor.fetchall()

However, when it iterates through the list and fileName equals something
like "Hello World's" with a single quote inside the query fails as the
string is ended prematurely, does anybody know how I can solve this?

Thanks in advance,
