Metafields not populating from external ERP system

Hello, 

 

We are having an issue on our store where we cannot populate variant meta fields from our erp system unless the meta field has been previously filled in.

 

For example, we have a colour meta field, if we enter "pink" into this meta field manually in Shopify and then remove the value. We can then run the script with no errors and the new value that was in the ERP system would be populated. But if we try to run the script on a meta field where no value has previously been (like in a new product) we get an error of "[WebScript] No Metafields for SKU: BBA00095-1" which is basically saying there isn't a meta field set up. Its like it doesn't recognise the meta fields unless it has already been used.

 

Has anyone else faced this issue and could provide us with advice.
