im having a problem on double execution, this is a part of audit trail on my system, the DELETE FUNCTION is working, but it aint updating, im getting an error - it says that "Syntax Error on update statement" on i tried to manually query it on my access and it is working

Dim burahin As String
        burahin = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to delete a customer from the database", vbOKCancel + vbQuestion, "Administrator")
        If burahin = vbOK Then
            Dim delet = "UPDATE audit SET action= 'DELETED A CUSTOMER' WHERE pk_id = " + TextBox5.Text + ""
            Dim Sql = "Delete from customer where  customer_ID= " + TextBox1.Text + ""
            cmd = New OleDbCommand(Sql, connection)
            cmd2 = New OleDbCommand(delet, connection)
            Dim affectedRecord As Integer
            [b]Dim affectedRecord2 As Integer[/b]
            Try
                connection.Open()
                affectedRecord = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery

                If affectedRecord = 0 Then
                    MessageBox.Show("No Record was Updated")
                Else
                    MsgBox("Customer Deleted", MsgBoxStyle.Information, "Administrator")
                    Call textdb2clear()

                    DataGridView1.DataSource = Nothing
                    sql2.Fill(db1, "customer")
                    DataGridView1.DataSource = db1.Tables(0)
                End If
            Catch ex As Exception
                MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString)
            End Try
            connection.Close()
            connection.Open()
            Try
                affectedRecord2 = cmd2.ExecuteNonQuery
                If affectedRecord2 = 0 Then
                    MessageBox.Show("No Record was Updated")
                End If
            Catch ex As Exception
                MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString)
            End Try
            If connection.State <> ConnectionState.Closed Then
                connection.Close()
            End If
        End If

Try the following with your update statement -

Dim delet = "UPDATE audit SET action = '[DELETED A CUSTOMER]' WHERE pk_id = '" + TextBox5.Text + "'"

Have a look at This link. It might help solve your problem.

It sounds like a naming convention or reserved word used in the update statement.

i dont see anything wrong with it, there is no reserved word here

"UPDATE audit SET action= 'DELETED A CUSTOMER' WHERE pk_id = " + TextBox5.Text + ""

wtf action
