I don't know about the objects in older versions of outlook as I don't have a copy to test, but here are some adaptations to Rgonzo's code that will work in Office 2010 and newer.

Sub UpdateCompany()
    Dim strCompany As String
    Dim objTask As Outlook.TaskItem
    Dim i As Integer

    strCompany = InputBox("New Company", "Select the new Company name")

    For i = 1 To Outlook.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Count
        Set objTask = Outlook.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Item(i)
        objTask.Companies = strCompany
        objTask.Save
    Next
    
    MsgBox Outlook.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Count & " task(s) have been update to a new company of " & strCompany
    
End Sub
