STANDARD_INDUSTRY_CLASS lost when updating supplier using AP_VENDOR_PUB_PKG.UPDATE_VENDOR_PUBLIC


As part of a supplier data cleanse activity we are setting END_DATE_ACTIVE values for multiple supplier records using the API AP_VENDOR_PUB_PKG.UPDATE_VENDOR_PUBLIC. Unfortunately when we do this the previously populated STANDARD_INDUSTRY_CLASS value (e.g. 'SUPPEX') on the supplier record is lost and replaced with a NULL value.

This is causing data quality issues as we require the STANDARD_INDUSTRY_CLASS for reporting

From examining the code of the API it appears that the STANDARD_INDUSTRY_CLASS is being made NULL as this column is not included in the R_VENDOR_REC_TYPE used by the package.

Please can you review this and provide a fix so that the STANDARD_INDUSTRY_CLASS is not made NULL when using this API.
