I have table:

CREATE TABLE acronym (
  acronym char(20) ,
  description varchar(512) 

I try to insert row:


(i tried with borland delphi+ado and bin\mysql.exe)

the row was not insert.

If I remove "\" simbol from insert sql then row insert.

How to repeat:
Create any table and try to run this sql with bin\mysql.exe:

INSERT INTO table (f1) VALUES ('\');

you are excaping hte quotes
you should write ... values('\\','...'_') instead of '\'
in pascal ther conceppt of excaped strings is missing

This is not a bug; as noted above you need to escape the backslash, otherwise it is trying to escape the apostrophe.
