UPDATE   &  INSERT INTO  don't use the same format
INSERT INTO does not use "="

on of the many reference pages on the web
 http://w3schools.com/sql/default.asp
--------------------------------
INSERT INTO table_name
VALUES (value1, value2,....)
--which puts the values into the first col, second, etc.

You can also specify the columns for which you want to insert data:
INSERT INTO table_name (column1, column2,...)
VALUES (value1, value2,....)
---------------
UPDATE table_name
SET column_name = new_value
WHERE column_name = some_value
