It sounds like you may be working with a selection and not the base table. 
When you perform operations on objects, it really deletes the object and 
creates new one(s). Your view of the selection is based on the internal 
RowID. Those selected items that you altered are re-written at the end of 
the table, if you look in the browser. Your function is probably working 
properly, just perform your select query again, or go back to the base 
table and view the results.
