Using UPDATE with an array - is it possible?

Hello - 

I have a controller with a variable that is output as an array - and I would like to use UPDATE to give my users the ability to make in-line edits to records displayed an a VF page.  Is this at all possible? 

Here is my controller:
public with sharing class QualOpController
{

public List <Opportunity> Opty {get;set;}
public list<String> campaigns {get;set;}

public PageReference saveOp(){
    UPDATE Opty;
    return null;
    }

 public String getName(){
        return 'QualOpController';
        }

public void load() 
{
  campaigns= new List<String>();
  Opty = [Select id, name, CreatedDate, StageName, Vert_Med__c, Company_Name__c, Next_Step__c, Vertical__c, Weeks_Live__c, Days_Since_Last_Modified__c, Contract_SENT__c, NextStep, LeadSource, Probability, Spend_Last_Week__c, Spend_Last_30_Days__c, Owner_Name__c, Revenue_All_Time__c from Opportunity WHERE Pipeline_Oppty__c = TRUE ]; 
  
  Set<String> campaignSet = new Set<String>();
  for (Opportunity j : Opty)
      campaignSet.add(j.Vert_Med__c);
      
      for (String campaign : campaignSet) 
      {
            campaigns.add(campaign);
      }
      campaigns.sort();
    }
}

I am trying to get this statement:  

 
public PageReference saveOp(){
    UPDATE Opty;
    return null;
    }

 public String getName(){
        return 'QualOpController';
        }

to update these records: 
 
campaigns= new List<String>();
  Opty = [Select id, name, CreatedDate, StageName, Vert_Med__c, Company_Name__c, Next_Step__c, Vertical__c, Weeks_Live__c, Days_Since_Last_Modified__c, Contract_SENT__c, NextStep, LeadSource, Probability, Spend_Last_Week__c, Spend_Last_30_Days__c, Owner_Name__c, Revenue_All_Time__c from Opportunity WHERE Pipeline_Oppty__c = TRUE ];

But the changes just won't save. 

Is there anything I can do differently to make this work? 

Thanks, 

John

John: There is nothing that you are doing to the Opty records, all I see is a query and a subsequent Update Opty but no field is being updated.

I think in your public PageReference saveOp(){ you want something like upsert campaigns which I see being manipulated in your Load method after the query.

Thank you Deepak, I am using a very similar format in another controller (shown below) and it is working like a charm there. 

I have never used UPSERT before, but I will give it a try!

Here is the controller where I am successfully using this method: 
 
public class R2MPipeLineController{

    public List<Opportunity> listOfLive {get; set;}
    public List<Opportunity> listOfViability {get; set;}
    public List<Opportunity> listOfLaunchPad {get; set;}
    public List<Opportunity> listOfContractSent {get; set;}
    public List<Opportunity> listOfQualified {get; set;}
    public Opportunity Live {get; set;}
    public Opportunity Viability {get; set;}
    public Opportunity LaunchPad {get; set;}
    public Opportunity ContractSent {get; set;}
    public Opportunity Qualified {get; set;}
    
    public PageReference saveCS(){
    UPDATE listOfContractSent;
    return null;
    }
    

    
public R2MPipeLineController() {
    listofLive = [Select id, name, CreatedDate, Company_Name__c, Next_Step__c, Vertical__c, Weeks_Live__c, Days_Since_Last_Modified__c, Contract_SENT__c, NextStep, LeadSource, Probability, Spend_Last_Week__c, Spend_Last_30_Days__c, Owner_Name__c, Revenue_All_Time__c from Opportunity WHERE StageName = 'Live' ORDER BY Weeks_Live__c DESC];
    listOfViability = [Select id, name, Marino_Projected__c, DeLuke_Projected__c, Amount, Projected_Revenue__c, CreatedDate, Company_Name__c, Next_Step__c, Vertical__c, Weeks_Live__c, Days_Since_Last_Modified__c, Contract_SENT__c, NextStep, LeadSource, Probability, Spend_Last_Week__c, Spend_Last_30_Days__c, Owner_Name__c, Revenue_All_Time__c from Opportunity WHERE StageName = 'Viability' ORDER BY Days_Since_Last_Modified__c DESC];
    listOfLaunchPad = [Select id, name, Marino_Projected__c, DeLuke_Projected__c, Amount, Projected_Revenue__c, CreatedDate, Company_Name__c, Next_Step__c, Vertical__c, Weeks_Live__c, Days_Since_Last_Modified__c, Contract_SENT__c, NextStep, LeadSource, Probability, Spend_Last_Week__c, Spend_Last_30_Days__c, Owner_Name__c, Revenue_All_Time__c from Opportunity WHERE StageName = 'Launch Pad' ORDER BY Days_Since_Last_Modified__c DESC];
    listOfContractSent = [Select id, name, Marino_Projected__c, DeLuke_Projected__c, Amount, Projected_Revenue__c, CreatedDate, Company_Name__c, Next_Step__c, Vertical__c, Weeks_Live__c, Days_Since_Last_Modified__c, Contract_SENT__c, NextStep, LeadSource, Probability, Spend_Last_Week__c, Spend_Last_30_Days__c, Owner_Name__c, Revenue_All_Time__c, Contract_Age__c from Opportunity WHERE StageName = 'Contract Sent' ORDER BY Contract_Age__c ASC];
    listOfQualified = [Select id, name, Marino_Projected__c, DeLuke_Projected__c, Amount, Projected_Revenue__c, CreatedDate, Company_Name__c, Next_Step__c, Vertical__c, Weeks_Live__c, Days_Since_Last_Modified__c, Contract_SENT__c, NextStep, LeadSource, Probability, Spend_Last_Week__c, Spend_Last_30_Days__c, Owner_Name__c, Revenue_All_Time__c from Opportunity WHERE StageName = 'Qualified' ORDER BY Probability DESC]; 

}
