I think I'd probably use an EDIT function for each displayed record...

You'd need to write a loop that would edit each record that was  

You could then have a button or link that would send the page to the  
processing page, where the loop would do an EDIT for each record in  
your found set, regardless of whether any fields were changed in that  

You could use Javascript to set a hidden field for each record when  
it's edited, so that it's flagged as having been edited, but failing  
that, you'll need to do an EDIT for every record.
