update a record in a form

I have a form that is used to update a record from a sql table. This page will load with a value being retrieved from a querystring.
The value is from the querystring and a call is made to a WS that returns the record (that is to fill all the fields in the form) which then allows the user to update this record. Not delete or add a new record just update.
Having said that, with many different ways to do this, what is the best way and recommended approach.

There are about 40 fields, which include drop down, radio buttons and text area fields.
