  • History:
    • 2009-12-10 Transcribed from development source; updated name of source query in STAGE 2; added statement numbers for debugging purposes and changed line formatting for better readability
    • 2009-12-13 Additional UPDATE in stage 3 -- has not been tested yet! Maybe unnecessary? Things weren't working, and then by the time I rewrote them the data did somehow get updated...
    • 2010-06-27 This has been turned into a standalone script -- see VbzCart/code/maint/build-cat.php
  • Notes:
    • Fields which specifically do not need to be (or should not be) always updated:
      • ID_Title is a join key (used in
  1. REDIRECT Template:l/vc/query)
      • CatSfx is a join key (used in qryCtg_Items_forUpdJoin)
      • QtyMin_Stk is a permanent field; it was formerly copied over to the temp table and then copied back
      • Supp_CatNum is also a permanent field
      • PriceList may be set for individual items, and should not be reset to NULL
