Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but you'll have multiple rows, each with a book and a possible Quantity. you want the user to hit Update once and it will update each Row with the Quantity if it exists?

If that's correct, why not just do a Loop through the Rows, for each Row, if txtQty > 0 then Update based on current RowID ?

Also, they way you are performing your SQL Querys is a huge no-no, it's begging for SQL injection and a Hack!
