NIFLocateNote - Update collection position for a note.

#include <nif.h>

    HCOLLECTION  hCollection,
    NOTEID  NoteID);
Description :

When a collection is modified (for example, when another user adds or deletes a document), the collection position for a note may no longer be valid.
NIFLocateNote will locate the specified note ID in the collection, and update the collection position to the new position.

Parameters : Input : hCollection - Handle to the collection.

IndexPos - Pointer to the old collection position.

NoteID - Note ID of the note to locate.

Output : (routine) - Return status from this call -- indicates either success or what the error is. The return codes include:

NOERROR ERR_NOT_FOUND ERR_xxx - Errors returned by lower level functions. There are so many possible causes, that it is best to use the code in a call to OSLoadString and display/log the error for the user.

IndexPos - Collection position updated to match the position in the modified collection.
