Thank you very much. Escaping the ' character with another ' has solved
my problem.

Indeed I am doing a bulk insertion operation (1000 insertion at a time
(Values > 1000 causes stackoverflow exception)). So I prepare the query
in advance and execute it in one step. In total, I have ~1M records.
However, I could not decide on which one would be more efficient. So,
I'm trying both options now.

Thanks again,
