Just do the same thing you did with the INSERT statement, but just use an UPDATE statement instead. You are, however, leaving yourself open to SQL injection which could ruin your database. I would look into parameterized queries to avoid future trouble.

You have code that saves data but you can't update data? I'm confused. Where are you stuck?
