"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You change the properties of your data object, so you point to the correct type of database (Access for example) to the correct db file (mydb.dbf for example) and using the correct table (workers for example).
Give the "data" a name (myData for example).

Now you write
 myData.recordset.moveFirst
 while (not EOF myData)
  i = myData.recordset.fields("hatcolor").value
  j = myData.recordset.fields(2).value
  myData.recordset.fields(3).value = "boo"
  myData.recordset.update ' needed only after writing to field, not for reading.
' If you had not used write, you would not use the ".update" .
 endw

Hope this helps, Moshe
