Updating the new field for all products RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,


    I have added a new field to the product entity that contain the subject path for the subject field

    for example if the subject tree si as follows:

    subject 1

    subject 1-1

    subject 1-2

    subject 2

    subject 2-1

    subject 2-2


    and the subject field contains: subject 2-2

    the customized field will contain: subject 2 \ subject 2-2


    i have added the code to do this to the subject field onChange event and it works perfectly

    so that when the user choose the subject the new field will be updated automatically


    now i have an issue with old products that have been added before adding this customized field


    is there anyay update the customized field for all old products without needing to open each one of them as i have around 400 records


    any help will be appreciated


    Thanks in advance :)

  • Regardless of what option you choose, the "OnChange" code will only fire if you open each record individually.  So, whether you use the Data Import , the Bulk Update tool, or something else , you'll need to rewrite the code to resolve the "path" for use with that utility.

  • You cannot vote on your own postMostafa, I have marked the previous post as the answer as it looks correct and answers your question. If you do not believe this is the answer, could you post more information about why it does not work for you. Thanks

  • I don't want to appear self-serving, but I concur with Dave.  Without additional information, my last response is the most complete for addressing your needs.  In the interest of finalizing this post in totality, I will lock it, and encourage you to make a new post if you require additional information.  If I see it, I will merge it here and reopen this thread for additional discussion.  Regardless of whomever is awarded the answer by the moderators, without justifying your retraction thereof I must assume malicious intent.
