Combining multiple SQL Update commands for Access database?

P: n/a
Hi! Perhaps you know of a better way here.

I have an Access database, actually a single table. Now, at the click of a button on a C# Form, each and every single cell associated with the primary keys has to be updated. I have the new cell values in an arraylist and this is what I am doing:

for (int i = 0; i < numberOfPrimaryKeys; i++)
adapter.UpdateCommand = new OleDbCommand(strSQL, conn);

"strSQL" has the update command for a row; I am updating the Access database one row-command at a time.

My God, ONE ROW-COMMAND AT A TIME! Is there a better way, a faster way?

I read somewhere that I can combine multiple SQL statements by separating them with a semi-colon and putting the whole lot into the "strSQL" string. Apparently, that doesn't work, at least not with an Access database.

Any and every comment will help. Thanks!
