How to subtract a session value from a database table value in a recordset

I have a small issue.

When the user returns after paying for a bill, I need to change a field in the database to paid.

I want to do this on the success page. Could you tell me how to do this.

I am using the standard PayPal buttons. I thought that if I made a session value of the bill ID when the user clicks the PayPal button I could use the session on the success page to filter a record set for the bill that has been paid for, and then use the data assist to update the field on page load.

Not sure if this is possible because when I open cookies tool kit to make the session it does not see the PayPal button.

Could you tell me how to do this?
