Other words that came in for Update:

Read (if replace Apply with Write)

About synchronize... I thought the term makes sense because the window will
reflect the current info. in the database after pressing the button (the
window data is synchronized with the database data). One problem: in Motif,
all buttons expand to the length of the longest button
text. So I may have some length problems with "Synchronize."
