Can't Update GridView

I have a GridView bound to a SQL Server DataSource.  All the data renders from that souce into the bound grid.  I've made the grid editable, so when I hit "Edit", the one field I want to be edited is enabled.  When I put in the new value and hit update, absolultely nothing happens.

The attached file shows my update query.  There's not much to it.  I map the "Quantity" field in the grid to the "QUantity" field in the database.  When I hit "execute query", the value I put in manually in this window indeed DOES get written to the database.  However, when I update a single row, not only does that value not get written to all rows (as in my test), but nothing gets updated anywhere.

I'm almost there.  What grand avatar can guide me to the ever-elusive grail of actually being able to update a datasource?

You have to complete the SQL statement add a where clause, something like:
WHERE some_column=some_value

Otherwise how does it know which record in the db to update?

I believe it works in the query builder, because it knows the record to update (by default the first one in the table, possibly?), but in the gridview it doesn't know.

I thought of that and added the WHERE clause later.  Still doesn't work.

The attached image shows my settings in the query window.  What am I missing?

Did you add breakpoints in your code to see if the update event/method(s) are firing at all?

The actual problem was that I had a DataBind() method being called on postback. This loaded the old data back into the grid.  Once I took it out, the grid was updated without a problem.
