<b>getting a single quot into a variable.</b>

I have a condition where I am dynamically constructing an IF condition, and passing it to my subroutine pool. My IF condition exceeds text literal maximum length. I cut it up into segments and wrote out the code in segments. This is not acceptable when the break is IN A TEXT LITERAL. ex.

IF BSEG-KUNNR EQ '2322093' OR BSEG-KUNNR EQ '330938'.
  gets broken up into 
IF BSEG-KUNNR EQ '2322093' OR BSEG-KUNNR EQ '33
0938'.

What I am doing instead is getting every 2 character piece of the string IFSTRING and trying to check if that 2 character string equals [' ]. That's just a single quote and a space. That would indicate the end of a single comparison. I tried comparing it to ` , ''', '` ', and others:

MOVE IFSTRING+OFF(CURLENGTH) INTO lt_string.
IF lt_string eq '` '.
 APPEND OFF TO BREAKREFERENCES.
ENDIF.

<b>Does anyone know how to move a single quote to a variable</b>? so i can concatenate <singlequot> & <singlespace> into comparisonstring.
