Is it possible for me to edit mysql data from a browser with php? In the attached code, it will display the data from the mysql database in a browser. Notice line:

echo '<td><a href="edit_g.php"><center>EDIT</center></a></td>';

If I have a file named edit_g.php, could I add some type of code to it so I could edit the mysql data for that particular record?
<p> To go back <a href="http://mysite/flow/index.html">click here</a>.</p>
<?php
$con = mysql_connect("localhost","uname","password");
if (!$con)
  {
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
  }

mysql_select_db("psrflow", $con);

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM orderinfo WHERE status = 'office a'");


echo "<table border='7'>
<tr>
<th>Cust No</th>
<th>First Name</th>
<th>Last Name</th>
<th>Status</th>

<th></th>
</tr>";

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
  {
  echo "<tr>";
  echo "<td align='center'>" . $row['custno'] . "</td>";
  echo "<td align='center'>" . $row['fname'] . "</td>";
  echo "<td align='center'>" . $row['lname'] . "</td>";
  echo "<td align='center'>" . $row['status'] . "</td>";
  echo '<td><a href="edit_g.php"><center>EDIT</center></a></td>'; 
  
  echo "</tr>";
  }
echo "</table>";

mysql_close($con);
?>

You would have to wrap it into <form> and for example pass the record id in <input type="hidden" value="<?php echo'$row[id]';?>" />
Then the file edit_g.php would have to do
$query = "update table set v1=$_POST[custno], .... WHERE id = $_POST[id]";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error);
