Exactly what are you trying to do.. an insert query or an update query?

With SQL you cannot use full quotes ("), only single quotes (') as text identifiers.  Full quotes are treated as column names.

Also to update something you need a condition, otherswise every row in the table will get the same data.

Finally, you are using UPDATE while you have INSERT syntax.

For inserts use:
INSERT tableName (Column1, column2, column3) VALUES (value1, value2, value3)

For updates use:
UPDATE tableName SET column1=value1, column2=value2, column3=value3 WHERE (somecolumn=somevalue)

Hope this helps,
