Is there a way to using openquery to update a specific record in AS400?

Or anyway using T-SQL to update an individual record in AS400?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You should be able to use OpenQuery and/or OpenRowset
to update the AS400 if you can access the AS400 with ODBC.

Step 1.
Create an ODBC System DSN for the AS 400 on your machine.
U must have the ODBC drivers installed.

Step2.
Add linked server. Choose 'OLE DB Provider for ODBC' and
enter the default database name in the 'Catalog:' field.
Enter the name of the DSN in the 'Data source field:'.

Select the Security tab for the linked server and check the lowest radio button ('be made using ....') and enter username and password.

Step 3.
Test the linked server.

Step 4
UPDATE OPENQUERY(NameOfLinkedServer,
'SELECT Field FROM DB.Schema.Table')
SET FIELD = Value

OR JUST USE

UPDATE NameOfLinkedServer.DB.Schema.Table
SET FIELD = Value
