I am being asked to create a SPF record for the first time. Could someone tell me if I have to put the text in quotation marks when I create a SPF record. Also does the name have to be specific to the domain, or can I name it anything?

I'm not aware you can create a SPF record (at least on our appliances). What you could do it to create a TXT record and indeed use quotes. Since the TXT record has no name, you can't name it :-D

Sorry, yes that is the way I was speaking of creating it..Thru a txt record. I'm using the Infoblox Grid Manager/Ipam. The string of text that I was given to use is without quotes. Will it make a difference if the quotes are left out?

Yes, in your case you need to use quotes. Otherwise, every word (space separated) will be considered as another string.
You can check your record using :
1. dig : dig TXT yourzone.com, on a Linux/OS X machine
2. nslookup on Windows :
set type=txt <enter>
