Hi Ludwig,
Thanks for writing in our forums!
I believe what you found is a bug but to confirm, can you please turn on the global option to preview the SQL queries before they are sent to the database?? That option was introduced in MySQL for Excel 1.2.0.

If you preview the SQL queries you will be able to workaround the issue by editing the SQL query before sending it to the MySQL server and escaping yourself the special characters.

If you find out the generated SQL query is indeed not escaping special characters as it should then please raise a bug for MySQL for Excel at:

Thanks for the feedback, it helps us improve our products!

Best regards.
