recordset.update will use the fields collection actual vs retrieved values, so, it will rather work like this:

recordset.fields("field").value = "value"
...
recordset.update

and adodb will generate and run the sql for you.

if fields and values are 2 collections/array/... you "just" need to loop through them and make the line to assign the value "dynamic"...

Dim strFile As String
Dim varValue As Variant

'set your field and value variables ...

'then pass them in like this ...
rst.Fields(strField).Value = varValue
rst.Update
