i just want one row to be updated. how is that? :) Thanks you! :)

i just want one row to be updated.

What is the problem you're experiencing? The code to update only a single employee number is there already (assuming it's unique).

the code displays all my records, i just want to update 1 row.

Depends on how you want that to work. Common is to provide a link next to every row, that will take you to a detail page to update that row. That would mean you would have to add those links, and create a view-detail.php script, which you can then use to update a single record. Is that what you mean?

isnt it possible to just edit the record without having another form? what i want to happen is that, if the form displays all my records, i would be able to edit, lets say 2 records but one at a time but not having another form. i have an update button for every row.

Thanks!

Then you need an editable datagrid. It's possible, but you'd need to adjust your form. It needs to use arrays of inputs. Or use a tool like datatables.net which already offers part of that functionality.

Hi mallows u need to edit the data with in the same display grid right then u can go for the AJAX its simple to access using the ajax.
u need it as like it..
