It's not hard, per se, simply issuing an update call -- what type of tutorial are you looking for?

Well, iv created a membership script. And i would likee to add a form for a user to change their email address. I want to learn how to replace one field with a new value, submitted by the user. Or just a general statement name for me to be able to google it and find out more..

I can't think of a tutorial off-hand... basically, you make an HTML form, populate it with their current e-mail, give them an input field for their new e-mail, and then they POST the form to a PHP script. This PHP script checks the value of $_POST['newEmailAddress'] (or whatever you called the field), and runs a DB UPDATE statement for the user record with the uid defined by the current session / logged in user. Viola -- you're done -- and then you can send them back to a confirmation page with a redirect.

Does that make sense?
