Update data on VB Net intranet web page

On our small VB Net intranet site, Experts Exchange helped me with this insert new data on an “On ClicK”. Is there anything similar to Update data based on my SQlDatasource on that web page?

 SqlIntoEmp.InsertCommandType = SqlDataSourceCommandType.Text
        SqlIntoEmp.InsertCommand = "Insert into Input_Table (,FirstName,lastname) VALUES @FirstName, @LastName,)"

        SqlIntoEmp.InsertParameters.Add("FirstName", FirstName.Text)
        SqlIntoEmp SqlIntoCall.InsertParameters.Add("LastName", LastName.Text)

Thank you

Are you asking how to set up an UpdateCommand, and then call the Update method?

SqlIntoEmp.UpdateCommandType = SqlDataSourceCommandType.Text
SqlIntoEmp.UpdateCommand = "Update Input_Table Set FirstName = @FirstName, lastname = @LastName"

SqlIntoEmp.UpdateParameters.Add("FirstName", FirstName.Text)
SqlIntoEmp.UpdateParameters.Add("LastName", LastName.Text)

sure, the function is the same, just change the SQL inside it

instead of "Insert ....blabla"

use "Update Input_Table SET FirstName = @FirstName , lastname = @LastName WHERE <ADD YOUR WHERE STATEMENT HERE>"

You need to know which record to update, im guessing each one has an ID, so you get the ID from the website as a hiddenfield and in the WHERE clause use something like "WHERE ID =  @ID"

Also change all the words from INSERT to UPDATE
(IE:) InsertParam..---> UpdateParameters
