# Inserting "\" character into a field

If I enter "e:/abc/def/ghi/xxx.jpg" into a field of a record I am inserting it works fine. But if I enter "e:\abc\def\ghi\xxx.jpg" it will only write "e:abc" into that field. Apparently it doesn't like "\" character, I tried a few things to get around it with no success. Whats the trick?

You should escape '\ characters like this:
"e:\abc\def\ghi\xxx.jpg"
