This an old question from the old Magento forum (http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/513702/#top).
I am trying to update stock quantities via magento API method (cataloginventory_stock_item.update) on my application in C#.
The callReturn I get is “true” - which means it updated successfully.
However when I go to the store and check the inventory qty value, I only get the first digit of the value I posted. For example, when I posted with qty = 80 (or 876 or 8123), I got a stock qty of only 8.
Why am I getting only the first digit through ?
