I get the following error in my code: SQL Error! Can not perform SQL update. You have an error in your sql syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near UPDATEDEMSET......
This is the updateLine[y]. What am I doing wrong? Thank you.

The very first thing you should do when you are told there is an error in your SQL is to look at that SQL.

Also look at the whitespace (or lack thereof) in your query.
