"Batch" updating nodes from csv file Q's?

Using D6.22 with a custom module to read and parse a csv file. The code constructs then populates the node object correctly (as determined with print_r's) and then calls node_submit/node_save. The content type node is inserted/updated correctly but one content field, which is stored in a separate table (Drupal's call, not ours), is set to NULL. I can see the object value properly populated immediately before the call to node_save so what might be happening to cause Drupal to loose this field's value?

Hopefully someone can list the proper sequence of function calls to properly apply this data? Note: on version D5.x we were using drupal_execute. Now on D6 its been changed to node_save.

Hopefully someone's experience with this will help us?
