How to update columns from row to another row? (thank you)

assume my Table's Columns looks like below

1  ,   Annie,   History, pass, null
2  ,   Colin,   Math   , Pass, null
7  ,   Annie,   History, Fail, 1
11 ,   Colin,   Math   , Fail, 2

When Delete
7  ,   Annie,   History, Fail, 1
11 ,   Colin,   Math   , Fail, 2

using the last column to check which row is reference with it
so when delete Row 7 which reference with
1  ,   Annie,   History, pass, null
when delete Row 11 which reference with
2  ,   Colin,   Math   , Pass, null

if I gooing to delete the row of No7 the result would be
1  ,   Annie,   History, Fail, null  
2  ,   Colin,   Math   , Pass, 0
11 ,   Colin,   Math   , Pass, 0

if I going to delete the row of No11 the result would be

1  ,   Annie,   History, pass, null
2  ,   Colin,   Math   , Pass, null
7  ,   Annie,   History, Fail, 1

I think the simply way to explan is
when you delete a row of data , first find out which row is reference with it and then update the row which reference with it

can you teach me how to do it ? wirte this request in Code or useing SQL Script?
thank you

I'm not sure I understand your question.  Do you only want to delete a record once is has a referenced record?  So delete record 7 once record 1 exists???  And you can determine that a record has a referenced record because the 5th column has a value?  What are you updating in the first record?

Row updating, row updated confusion
Okay this is the first time I've ever had to do code behind for row updating logic in a gridview. So be patient with me if it's totally incorrect.

How to transform SQL output rows into GridView rows+columns?

question about updating a row? How to update a different row.
I will try to make this as simple as I can. k, here I go. I originally populate my datagrid with data. Then during the edit mode, I can populate information by an ontextchanged event, which is actually bringing in a new row (essentially). My problem occurs when I try to update the data. Since the row was originally populated with the data, it updates that row in the table. But since I did an ontextchanged, I want to update that row instead. Not the original row. If I do an update, then I have two identical rows of data in my table, but with different primary keys. How can I update t...
