SP that updates a table according to optional parameters?

P: 3

Here's my scenario: I want to update a row using an SP. Sometimes I want to update the whole row, sometimes just a couple of fields in the row. I don't want to write an SP for every scenario, I want to write one that knows only to update the fields for which I have passed in parameters containing data.

I have got so far with the SP:

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[usp_updateprice]
@suppid varchar(3),
@partnum varchar(30),
@description varchar(60),
@xrefnum varchar(30),
@nato_code varchar(22),
@reconind varchar(1),
@discode varchar(2),
@np_discode varchar(2),
@minordq int,
@current_price money,
@price_annex_f money,
@price_am money,
@price_painted money,
@surcharge money,
@flagtext varchar(245)
UPDATE prices SET suppid = @suppid,
partnum = @partnum,
description = @description,
xrefnum = @xrefnum,
nato_code = @nato_code,
reconind = @reconind,
discode = @discode,
np_discode = @np_discode,
minordq = @minordq,
current_price = @current_price,
price_annex_f = @price_annex_f,
price_am = @price_am,
price_painted = @price_painted,
surcharge = @surcharge,
flagtext = @flagtext
WHERE suppid = @suppid AND partnum = @partnum

Anyone have any ideas as to how this could be accomplished? I am calling the SP with

Many thanks in advance.

OK, this SP takes some parameters and updates a record with them. If any of the parameters that are passed to the procedure are NULL then the original values are left unchanged in the target field. The SP passes back the rowcount of rows updated which is useful to know.

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[usp_updateprice]
-- Incoming Parameters
@suppid varchar(3),
@partnum varchar(30),
@description varchar(60),
@current_price money
UPDATE prices SET suppid = isnull(@suppid, suppid),
partnum = isnull(@partnum, partnum),
description = isnull(@description, description),
current_price = isnull(@current_price,current_price)
WHERE suppid = @suppid AND partnum = @partnum

return @@rowcount
