Manually Updating Quantities
bordi2k posted a topic in Core developersHello, I'm trying to automatically keep my product quantities up-to-date and have written some VBA code that grabs the quantities from an external supplier. I'm having difficulty in updating the admin page using an IE object so I have decided to try and update the quantities from the MySQL db instead as this seems more reliable. My only concern is that simply updating the quantity for the relevant product and bypassing the admin panel could produce undesirable effects. I have winmerged the DB before and after a simple quantity update and it seems to be updating timestamps and doing something with the attributes. Am I at risk of breaking something by simply changing the quantity? Thanks!
