Do you want to update all three of those records?  Then use "IN"

<cfquery  datasource="people">
        UPDATE dbo.purchase
  SET confirmed_airdate='#FORM.confirmed_airdate#',
          WHERE purchase_id IN ('#FORM.purchase_id#')      

Also, you do not need the single quotes if purchase_id  is numeric

<cfquery  datasource="people">
        UPDATE dbo.purchase
  SET confirmed_airdate='#FORM.confirmed_airdate#',
          WHERE purchase_id IN (#FORM.purchase_id#' )

Ok...it's not giving me an error now but it's changing all the purchase records to the same variable i set on the first one.  For example, I have an ORDER table.  i also have a purchase table which contains multiple items for the same order linked by a foreign key to the order table.  when i change one of the variables on one of the purchase records on that order it is changing all purchase records to be the same.  I'm missing something here.

here's what's happening...

let's say i am updated 3 records in my purchase table.  What the code is doing is adding those three variables into each of the three records.  It's not parsing one by one.  Using the CFDUMP tag i'm getting "04/13/2006,04/28/2006,04/22/2006 "  those values are going in to each of my three records instead of 04/13/2006 going into purchaes_id 44, 04/28/2006 into purchase_id 45, and 04/22/2006 going into purchase_id 45 etc... Help!!

ALRIGHTY - I think i figured it out....here it is for any others who are following up on this.  You experts can take a look and let me know if it looks good.

        <cfquery datasource="people">
         UPDATE dbo.orders
  SET status='#FORM.status#'
      WHERE order_id = '#URL.order_id#'       
      <cfloop from="1" to="#listlen(form.confirmed_airdate)#" index="i">
      <cfquery  datasource="people">
        UPDATE dbo.purchase
  SET confirmed_airdate='#ListGetAt(FORM.confirmed_airdate, i)#',
      confirmed_time='#ListGetAt(FORM.confirmed_time, i)#'
          WHERE purchase_id = #ListGetAt(FORM.purchase_id, i)#      
That looks good to me, did you check to make sure it is updating correctly?
