    Using A String Literal In Query String

    I am attempting to append a string literal to a query string and execute the query. My issue is that I can not discover how to properly encapsulate the string literal with quotes so when the string is executed it fails. This is my syntax - what is the correct way to encapsulate the string with quotes?

    Dim inputText As String, strSQL As String
    inputText = "Hi" 
    strSQL = "Select red, blue, green, " & inputText & "from house"
    Debug.Print strSQL
    Select red, blue, green, hi from house

    Single quotes are needed around text data types.

    strSQL = "Select red, blue, green, '" & inputText & " from house'"
