Update ItemCode using B1WS


I am using the B1WS ( with SAP Business One version 9.2 with a SQL Server 2016 back-end database. I have not had a problem updating most fields on Items using the ItemsService WSDL generated by "wsdl service generator" and the "http handler" endpoint.

I am able to update ItemCode values in SAP Business One on the Item Master Data form, but if I attempt to update the ItemCode through the Update web service, I receive a fault:

<env:Envelope xmlns:env="">

I am guessing ItemCode is used as the unique identifier in the Update service. Is there any way to work around this using the B1WS, such as making some modification to the WSDL file? Or does the Interact method of the SBODI_Server.Node object from the SBODI_Server.dll allow for anything to be specified in the XML string that would allow the ItemCode to be updated?

I do not understand what exactly is happening when I update an ItemCode on the Item Master Data form, but I am hoping to be able to replicate that process through web service calls in an ASP.NET application.

Since the DI Server is an extension of the DI API, I am wanting to do something like below, but I need to interact with the DI Server more directly for performance reasons.

'after connecting to company

Dim myItem As SAPbobsCOM.Items
myItem = SAPCompany.GetBusinessObject(SAPbobsCOM.BoObjectTypes.oItems)
myItem.ItemCode = "P000002" 'assuming this is a new unique ItemCode

Any help is appreciated.
