You can create a custom Edit Form in SharePoint Designer and edit it to add a custom ParameterBinding for you QueryString. Then use the parameter to filter the datasource, in SelectCommand, to get your item.


But I'm not sure it's a good thing doing this. You need to ensure the uniqueness of you column value, otherwise you can have people editing the wrong item.
