    Removing a double quote from a string (XP)

    I have a csv file from SAP that contains commas in a field so it wraps the field in double quotes - "street addresss, building". when I import this into Access I end up with two fields - "street address and building".
    I can handle shifting the contents of the fields to the correct column but how do I test for and remove a double quote from a string - instr(strAdddres, """) doesn't work!
