I am trying to get the filenames in a folder using filename statement but what if there is a single quote in my folder name?
For example, the following code:
filename names pipe 'dir "C:\user'name\folder\" /b';
It will cause an error because there is a ' (single quote) in the pathway (user'name). I don't want to change the pathway. Could anyone teach me how to make it work?

Get rid of that stupid quote three days before yesterday. Such characters have no place in path names, as they only cause unnecessary work.

Double the single quote:
filename names pipe 'dir "C:\user''name\folder\" /b';
that's two single quotes between user and name.
