Is there a reason you need to update a primary key field? You should consider changing your database structure. Hidden, meaningless integer primary keys are preferred over primary keys that contain meaningful data. Because you want to be able to update this attribute, it should not be the primary key. Instead, place a unique constraint on it and define a hidden, meaningless integer primary key. Also the primary key is indexed(MSSQL), so each time you change this field the table indexes must be rebuilt.
