Help Creating a function to change SQL Field Values

Hi all

Im looking for some help in creating a function to allow me to hardcode updates into SQL. The attached code will allow me to open the DB and search the fields however its been a while since ive programmed in vb and am moving to .net so hence the .field("Name") = is a bit out of date..  :)

Any help would be great

Many Thanks
Steve

        If sqlReader.Read Then
            With sqlReader
                MsgBox(.GetValue(1) & "   " & .GetValue(2) & "   " & .GetValue(3))

        End If
        sqlReader.Close()

please check out this tutorial:
http://webgraphics.web108.discountasp.net/HandH/AdapterUpdate.htm

it tells you to fill in a sqldataadapter, and define the UpdateCommand that will submit the sql update (or procedure) to save any changes done to the data inthe sqldataadapter...

hope this clarifies how to do things the .net way
