Summary

ColdFusion's interaction with databases goes far beyond simple output. ColdFusion tags like <CFINSERT> and <CFUPDATE> give you the ability to create Web-based forms that can change the contents of your database. In doing so, you can allow yourself, your clients, or your users to make instant changes to stuff that appears on your Web sites.

Most often, these types of changes are made through Web forms built with standard HTML tags like <FORM>. Your forms collect user input and pass it along to ACTION pages—pages that employ ColdFusion to make the necessary changes to your database. You use the <CFINSERT> tag in your ACTION pages when you want to add a new record to a database, or the <CFUPDATE> tag when you want to alter the contents of an existing record.
