    How do I update the value of a field in a recordset?

    I have imported data using the DataSets.ImportData method. How do I update the value of a field of a record in the dataset? Is the only way to import the data using the LinkData method instead and then use the UpdateLink method. If so, does this not mean it refreshes the entire dataset and therefore will be slow? All I want to do is update the value of a field of a single record.

    Hi,

    Find the pushpin with the FindPushPin method. Then replace the text with the Note property.

    I need to modify the value of one of the fields that is shown in the Information part of the balloon, not the note text.

    I do not think you can I think those fields are read only.

    Hi,

    Workaround is then to delete it and add a new pushpin with the values you want.
