PS, you should also replace embedded single quotes with two single quotes

_
       "SET CompanyName = '" & Text2.Text & "'," & _
       
Should be

_
       "SET CompanyName = '" & Replace(Text2.Text, "'", "''") & "'," & _
       

Please note "'" = A string consisting of one single quotes
"''" = A string consisting of two single quotes, *NOT* one double quote...

also, the final sql string should look like:

UPDATE tbl set companyname='blablabla'
so put single quotes before and after you textfield.
