I'm sorry but the links you provided are not very clear to me. I want to update all the records in a table every 5 mins. Can you give a more clear explanation?

suppose you want to update table like:

Update SalesTable set CurrentTime=GETDATE()

Above statement will update the SalesTable's CurrentTime field with current date and time. Now you can go to SQL Server Agent, create new job, set above update statement there, set timing every 5 minutes and you are done. see screen shot for more details.

BTW, above links were providing information about how to use SQL Agent.
