You use a virtual catalog to display products on the Web site in Microsoft Commerce Server 2007.
You do not directly assign an inventory catalog to the virtual catalog.
You add a variant product to the cart, and then add a non-variant product to the cart.
In this scenario, the non-variant product is displayed in the cart as Out Of Stock even though there is lots of inventory for that product.
This problem occurs because the stored procedure that is used to perform the inventory check does not reset itself after the first product is added to the shopping cart.

This hotfix updates the stored procedure creation scripts for a new site. For an existing site, you must manually run the Inv_CheckInventory.sql and Inv_UpdateInventory.sql files that are included in the update. Run these files against the product catalog database to update the stored procedures in the database.
Note The only file that is included in this hotfix package is the Inventoryprocedures.pre.sql file. After you apply this hotfix, the Inventoryprocedures.pre.sql file will automatically update the default stored procedure creation script for the newly created product catalog database. To update all the existing stored procedures, you must manually run the inv_CheckInventory.sql and inv_UpdateInventory.sql files that are outside the hotfix package in every SiteName_productcatalog database.
