Sample Usage :

  void far PASCAL CopyItem(NOTEHANDLE hSrcNote,char *pSrcItem, NOTEHANDLE 
hDstNote,char *pDstItem)
   BLOCKID bhItem;
   char *pEffectiveDstItem = (pDstItem ? pDstItem : pSrcItem);
     char szDstItem[MAXINTF]; 

     // To deal with both responses and the parent, shortcut a copy to 
     if (hSrcNote == hDstNote) 

     NSFItemDelete(hDstNote, szDstItem, Cstrlen(szDstItem));

     if (NOERROR == NSFItemInfo(hSrcNote, pSrcItem, Cstrlen(pSrcItem), 
&bhItem, NULL, NULL, NULL)) 
    BLOCKID bhNewItem; 

      NSFItemCopyAndRename(hDstNote, bhItem, szDstItem);

      if (NOERROR == NSFItemInfo(hDstNote, szDstItem, Cstrlen(szDstItem), 
&bhNewItem, NULL, NULL, NULL))
     NOTE_ITEM *item = OSLockBlock(NOTE_ITEM,bhNewItem);
