Default using multiple timestamps

I am using one database and I want to have 3 forms acessing it. My original form, submits to the db and is assigned a timestamp. (this works fine)The second form will update the database as will a 3rd form.
My update form(s) is causing me grief by either overwriting the original timestamp, or using a default of 0000-00-00 00:00:00. (not acceptable, I have tried both timestamp and datetime)
I am sorry, I am having problems and am not sure if this is a problem with my form, or the database. I will post the code for the first update form below, Thank you in advance,

if (!(isset($_POST['SubmitForm_x']))) {
$whereStmt = ' IDNum="'.addslashes($_GET['IDNum']).'"';
$selectSql = 'SELECT * FROM cactus2 WHERE '.$whereStmt ;
$Result = $MyDb->f_ExecuteSql($selectSql);
$Resultset = $MyDb->f_GetRecord($Result);
