give the user a form to edit the car status like


<CFQUERY NAME="CarQuery" DATASOURCE="../dno/ser3">
  SELECT * FROM Cars
</CFQUERY>

<TABLE BORDER="2" >
      <FORM NAME="frm" ACTION="updatestatus.cfm" METHOD="post">
      <TR>
        <TH> Car ID </HT>
        <TH> Car_Status </HT>
      </TR>
    <CFOUTPUT QUERY="CarQuery">  
      <TR ALIGN="left">
        <TD>#CarQuery.CarID#<INPUT TYPE="Hidden" NAME="carid" VALUE="#CarQuery.CarID#"></TD>
        <TD><INPUT NAME="carstatus" VALUE="#CarQuery.Car_Status#"></TD>
      </TR>
    </CFOUTPUT>
      </FORM>
</TABLE>

<!--- updatestatus.cfm --->

<CFIF ISDEFINED('CARSTATUS') & LEN(TRIM(CARSTATUS))>
      <CFQUERY NAME="Qry_Update" DATASOURCE="Dsn">
        Update mytable
            set carstatus = <CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="cf_sql_varchar" VALUE="#carstatus#">
            where carid = <CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="cf_sql_numeric" VALUE="#carid#">
    </CFQUERY>
</CFIF>
