Hi kiran,

 

No, I need to update custom field value from  my .Net application.

Is your .net application integrated with salesforce application?

 

Thanks

Then hope you know about the DML (Update) operation, using them you can update the value of any particular record.

 

Thanks

Looks like you are trying to do an update in a SOQL query. Salesforce does not allow that.

 

See this documentation for some simple examples of using the WebServices API:

http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/api/index.htm 

 

simple example copied from there:

    //create the account object to hold our changes  
    
    Account updateAccount = new Account();

    //need to have the id so that API knows which account to update  
    
    updateAccount.Id = "001D000000Ivban";

    //set a new value for the name property  
    
    updateAccount.Name = "New Account Name from Update Sample";

    //call update passing an array of object  
    
    // assuming that you've already established an enterprise WSDL binding  
    
    SaveResult[] saveResults = binding.update(
        new sObject[] { updateAccount });
