I'm using the code below to update a record in a SQLCE database.  It seems strange that I have to fetch the record before I update it ?

     Using db = New sContext(ConnectionString)
                'find record
                Dim q = From s In db.Spots _
                Where s.sId = iId _
                Select s

                If q.Count() = 1 Then
                    Dim sp As SpotClass = (From s In db.Spots _
                        Where s.sId = iId _
                        Select s).First()
                    sp.sActive = "False"
                    sp.sEndDate = DateTime.Now.ToUniversalTime
                    db.SubmitChanges()
                End If
 

How would I update multiple records like in SQL.

UPDATE TBLTASK SET COMPLETEDATE = NOW WHERE TASKTYPE = 'AUTO'

(I hope that the answer is not what I'm suspecting!)
