update field

HI,

I'm gonna write a new application that is supposed to update one single field in an existing lead or contact. Lets say there's a contact with the email xxx@zzz.com and i would like to update just one field, e.g. "will atemd seminar". How can I do this? Is there a way to just send html post data to update single fields or which way do i need to go from here?
Thank you for your help!

Hi Ron,

I'm not sure if your email is unique within your salesforce data but I would query salesforce for the Id of the user you want to update, then call an update command on that user setting the checkbox to either 'true' or 'false'

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your reply! Uhm yes, the email would be unique in sales force. How would I get the ID and then 'call an update command'? I'm working with php and html. Is this possible? What should i look for?

Thanks,
Ron
