Web Service to update SQL Server table

I've got a web service written in VB.NET that I use to send datasets to an application and receive data back as a dataset after the user has modified the data within the application.  The biggest drawback to this method is that it could be a large dataset and sometimes the people work over a slow connection.  I've been looking for a way to send back and update an SQL table everytime they modify a record.  The code on the application isn't a problem, but I haven't found a good example of a web service that will update the SQL Server.  I only need to update two fields (a date the record was updated and who it was update by).

What kind of "example" are you looking for.  If you are only looking for a way to pass in a primary key value, and any field values, I wouldn't think that would be too difficult.

Want to pass primary key and two field values to be updated, one a date field (smalldatetime) and the other text (nvarchar(10)).  Passing it back to the web service isn't a problem, but the code to get the web service to update the SQL Server table is what I'm looking for.
