how to save to a database

I can open a database and have its contents displayed inside of a listctrl.  When I dblclick on the listctrl the data is displayed in some edit controls.  When I click on another listbox more data is entered into another edit control.  All the data that is accumulated inside of the edit controls I want to save to the database inside of my listctrl.  Please tell me the easiest way to perform this.

You could create an 'INSERT' or an 'UPDATE' sql query which you may then execute with CDatabase::ExecuteSQL

or better is to

use a CRecordset object have the recordset reflect the new listbox and call Update to update the datasource.

CDaoRecordset rec;

That is what I have for my recordset.  How might I use the update function?  To perform the updating.  I want it to take the date from the edit control fields (which is the new stuff) and update the database with it.  Then the changes should show up in the listctrl that shows the open database fields.

int nSel = m_database.GetNextItem(-1, LVNI_SELECTED);
      if(nSel != LB_ERR)
            char szName[32];
            m_database.GetItemText(nSel, 0, szName, 32);
            int nSelection = m_selectblock.GetCurSel();
            CString szSelection;
            if(nSelection != LB_ERR)
                  m_selectblock.GetText(nSelection, szSelection);
            strcpy((char*)covVal.bstrVal, szSelection.GetBuffer(48));
            rec.SetFieldValue(_T("Name"), covVal);

Is this what I have.  I looked at the parameters for the Update function and I really don't understand them.  What do I need to do to make this work?

Hi simonogod
Why don't U use DB Grid Activex Control I think it suits best for UR needs.
U need not worry about collecting from list and putting in edit control and again from edit control to list control.
Hope this helps
