Using ADO and its update method u can update the data written in textboxes or a grid etc in a form. For updating u can place a command button on form which is clicked after all fields / controls on the form are filled as required.

using ADO you can write the following code
Public dbase As New ADODB.Connection
Public rsconn As New ADODB.Recordset
Set dbase = New ADODB.Connection
dbase.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & App.Path & "\databaseName.mdb"
Set rsconn = New ADODB.Recordset
Set rsconn = dbase.Execute("UPDATE tableName SET field1 = '" & txtfieldName.Text &"' WHERE keyField = '" & txtkeyField.Text & "'")

With rsconn
.CursorLocation = adUseClient
.LockType = adLockOptimistic
.Source = "select * from ItableName "
.ActiveConnection = dbase

End With

Set rsconn = Nothing
Set dbase = Nothing
