You will need cgi to handle this.

You can pass your field value along in your hyperlink to the cgi
eg
<a href="http://www.example.com/example.html?fieldname=fieldvalue">link</a>

And in your cgi you will have some SQL statement like this :
insert into tablename (fieldname) values fieldvalue
or
update tablename set fieldname = fieldvalue where certain condition

Perhaps you can give more info about the cgi programs you are using.
