Been fighting with sql and continually get errors when running this statement.

UPDATE [FSSINC].[dbo].[Customer]
   SET [CustomerName] = CustomerName
 WHERE <,,> i add the criteria. What im trying to do is search for say instances where
firstname , lastname remove the , so i end up with just firstname lastname.

If you are looking to remove all commas then use REPLACE

UPDATE [FSSINC].[dbo].[Customer]
   SET [CustomerName] = REPLACE(CustomerName,  ','  ,  '' )

If you are looking to replace single quotes (As the question title)

UPDATE [FSSINC].[dbo].[Customer]
   SET [CustomerName] = REPLACE(CustomerName,  ''''  ,  '' )
