Attempting to create a custom button that will update a field when clicked

Hello,

 

I'd like to create a custom list button on the opportunity detail page, that when pressed, will update a field on the opportunity. I would like to try to use the "AJAX toolkit" to accomplish this but I'm not familiar with javascript.

 

Here is an example I was able to find but I'm not sure how to fill it out with my information. Would anyone be able to assist? Thanks so much:

 

{!requireScript("/soap/ajax/26.0/connection.js")}
var account = new sforce.SObject("Account");
account.id = //set Record Id here, potentially get it from the URL ?id= param

account.field__c = value;
sforce.connection.update([account]); 
window.location.reload(); //to reload the window and show the updated values
