You can use the single quotes to quote the double quote.

For example, you want to write the label "AAAA", you have to set the formula tool this way: '"AAAA"'

Hi thenewbee! If you want to keep the double quotes with your string, just surround with single quotes. Example: if you type '"Hello"' into the formula tool, the field will say "Hello". The reverse is also true!
