Thanks Tom,
   I am planning to use the function:-
HeapTuple SPI_copytuple(HeapTuple row) first and then modify the returned tuple using:-
HeapTuple SPI_modifytuple(Relation rel, HeapTuple row, ncols, colnum, Datum * values, const char * nulls)  
But I am stuck here. How do I convert a string into Datum type required for parameter 4 of SPI_modifytuple. I think the datum type is some binary value and I want to insert a string in that coloumn. 

With warm regards.
