Syntax for SQL

This statement needs to read [Desicioned by Mandatory] =[" "]
(Blank)

Any help would be appreciated!


 sql = "update [Roll Exception Report] set [Desicioned by Mandatory] =[" "] where  [company number] = " & Me.[Text38]
CurrentDb.Execute sql, dbFailOnError

typo to single quotes '  '

if company number is numeric

sql = "update [Roll Exception Report] set [Desicioned by Mandatory] ='' where  [company number] = " & Me.[Text38]

if company number is string

sql = "update [Roll Exception Report] set [Desicioned by Mandatory] ='' where  [company number] = """ & Me.[Text38] & """"

or to make it null

sql = "update [Roll Exception Report] set [Desicioned by Mandatory] = Null where  [company number] = " & Me.[Text38]


if company number is string

sql = "update [Roll Exception Report] set [Desicioned by Mandatory] =Null where  [company number] = """ & Me.[Text38] & """"
