Action code 04 for Business Partner API


We have a Business Partner SOAP API, however as per our requirements, we need to do update only, no new Business Partner Creation?

Currently we are using action code 04, which will update the BP, if its not in system, it will create BP in system.

Do we have any other action code which will update only, no new creation...

Appreciate your help!
