Ignore single quotes stored in a PHP variable
$sql="INSERT INTO tablename(notes) VALUES('$val')";
And the value of $val contains single quotes like Mary's Grade. That's the reason it is not getting stored in the database. How can i ignore single quotes in php variable?

Try removing the single quotes wrapping $val in the actual SQL statement.
