How to update a KV store field?

Communicator

Hello Splunkers.

I'm starting to work with KV store.
I used this exemple to practice: http://dev.splunk.com/view/SP-CAAAEZC

It's very interesting and is something I can use in my company with a little changes.
By the steps, we can ADD a row and DELETE a row.

How about updating a row?
I mean, I have the _key info, so I think that an update should be possible.
For example, a customer changed his address and I want to update his address field.

Can you guys help me?

Regards,
GMA

See the information available here on how to update KV store data using lookup command. http://dev.splunk.com/view/SP-CAAAEZH#keyid

Look for 5th example under "Examples" section

| inputlookup csvcoll_lookup | search _key=544948df3ec32d7a4c1d9755 | eval CustName="Marge Simpson" | eval CustCity="Springfield" | outputlookup csvcoll_lookup append=True
