How give user an opportunity to exit a form

I have a form with one required field (in the table setup).  And I have the following code in the onclose event of the form.  But I want to give the user the opportunity to exit the form with no data entry if they want to do so.  Here is my code so far:

Private Sub Form_Close()

    If Nz(Me.txtCompanyName, "") = "" Then
        MsgBox "You must enter a company name!!!"
    Exit Sub
    End If

End Sub

How can I present them with a message box that will either let them stay in the form but return the focus to the txtCompanyName field, OR, let them leave the form with no data entry?

try using the unload event of the form instead of the close event

Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
    If Nz(Me.txtCompanyName, "") = "" Then
        If (MsgBox("You must enter a company name!!!" & vbCrLf & "Do you want to continue?", vbYesNo)) = vbYes Then
               Cancel = True
               Me.txtCompanyName.SetFocus
         Else
               Exit Sub
          End If
    End If
End Sub
