I don't have an example, but I can tell you all the moving parts.

You need a script to list the rows from the data base table.  Usually you would have some kind of selectors - perhaps a drop-down select or some checkboxes to enable the client to limit the selection to the rows that are interesting.  Each of the rows would be a link to a specialized script.  The link would contain the key of the row in the URL along with an action indicator.

The specialized script would take the key from the $_GET string and look up the data base record.  If the action indicator is "List" the script will display all the information from this row.  For any other action, the POST method is required, since it represents a change to the data model.  If the action indicator is "Update" the script will pre-load the input controls of a form with the information from this row, and await the client changes and form submission.  If the action indicator is "Delete" the script will request POST method confirmation of the deletion.

In either case, when the specialized script is started via the POST method, it will perform the update or delete.

Since this kind of script can modify the data model, you might want to consider putting it behind some kind of administrative password protection.  Here is an article that shows you what you need for easy access control.
