How to update product information without overwriting all information

May 17, 2012 7:29 AM

Hi, I am using the Product_UpdateInsert API function to update product information.


The problem I am having is that when I update a product, all the information that has been input through the admin part is overwritten.



I insert a new product through the updateinsert function.

I use the administrator part to manually assign the product to a category.

I use the update insert function to update the inventory and then the product doesn't have a category anymore, because everything has been overwritten by the update insert function.



The current solution that I am using is retrieving the product from Business Catalyst and then update the inventory and use the update insert function.

The problem with this solution is that it takes 2 seconds to retrieve a product. And with an inventory of several thousands of products this is taking way to long!


How can I update product details without overwriting all other product information.

How a proper update function should work!
