something like:

            String query = "UPDATE addresses SET " +
                   "firstname='" + fields.first.getText() +
                   "', lastname='" + fields.last.getText() +
                   "', address='" + fields.address.getText() +
                   "', city='" + fields.city.getText() +
                   "', stateorprovince='" +
                   fields.state.getText() +
                   "', postalcode='" + fields.zip.getText() +
                   "', country='" + fields.country.getText() +
                   "', emailaddress='" +
                   fields.email.getText() +
                   "', homephone='" + fields.home.getText() +
                   "', faxnumber='" + fields.fax.getText() +
                   "' WHERE id=" + fields.id.getText();
                   output.append( "\nSending query: " +
                   connection.nativeSQL( query ) + "\n" );

            int result = statement.executeUpdate( query );
           
            if ( result == 1 )

that's an example for you.
you can do like this:

               String query = "UPDATE guest SET" +
                                     "lastname='" + b +"' ," +
                                     "firstname="' + c +"' ," +
                                     //..and so on +
                                     "' WHERE guest_ID="a;

               int result = statement.executeUpdate(query);
               if(result == 1)
                    //update successful...(your code here)
                                   

hope it helps ;)

Hi,
  First you have to search whether the given guest_id is present or not. Then only u can update a record.

      String a = super.getLastName();
      String b = super.getFirstName();
      String c = address.getAddress();
      String d = address.getCity();
      String e = address.getPostCode();
      String f = address.getState();
      String g = address.getCountry();
      String h = super.getPhone();
      String i = super.getFax();
      String j = super.getRemarks();


Now to Search for the given guest_id

the query will be
        String query =  "select 1 from guest where guest_ID = '"+a+"'

If this query returns 1. then the Guestid is present. Now you have to update the table. for this
the query will be
     
"UPDATE guest set firstname = '"+a+"', lastname = '"+b+"', address = '"+c+"',city='"+d+"',
                        stateorprovince='"+e+"', postalcode = '"+f+"',country = '"+g+"',
                        emailaddress = '"+h+"',homephone = '"+i+"', faxnumber = '"+j+"' WHERE
                         guest_id = a;

this query will update the table with the specified guest id.

Now, If the first query, that is checking for guest_id in the table, if this fails then that means that the record is not present. The guest id is not present. So we have to go for inserting a new Guest rather than updating. The insert query is the same as what you said.
If you have any doubt over this then reply plz..

He says:

>> i want to retrieve back my record and i am searching by the guest_id,

Anyway, kennykoid, is it simply the update part which is troubling you or something else? If you're being able to insert a row, then I don't see a problem with updating it - merely, the query will change in your add () code. Is it something else that you want to know?

Mayank.
