SQL Stored Procedure Question - From within an Access application -- sending changes to the SQL Server via a stored procedure call ----

Is it better to update one field at a time -- or to send all changes made on an unbound form in one function to the server?

Attached is an example of the Stored Procedure.

Client is experiencing awful bottlenecks and locking - ODBC timeouts, etc. I am in the process of rewriting the application in the trouble-spots but want to get some advise on how best to do this. I have used almost the exact stored procedure as the attached for other client apps with no issues -- but in this client's environment it locks everyone up - everything locks their system up.

Some forms have dozens of hidden subforms with links back to the customer table -- being eliminated -- and all their combo boxes (to select a customer) is another link back to the customer table -- I am replacing those with passthrough queries, etc.
