Function : Note
NSFNoteDeleteExtended - Deletes a note from a database.

#include <nsfnote.h>

    NOTEID  NoteID,
    DWORD  UpdateFlags);
Description :

This function takes a database handle, note ID, and a DWORD of UPDATE_xxx flag(s) as input and deletes the specified note from the specified database.
This function allows using extended 32-bit DWORD update options, as described in the entry UPDATE_xxx.

It deletes the specified note by updating it with a nil body, and marking the note as a deletion stub. The deletion stub identifies the deleted note to other replica copies of the database. This allows the replicator to delete copies of the note from replica databases.

The deleted note may be of any NOTE_CLASS_xxx. The active user ID must have sufficient user access in the databases's Access Control List (ACL) to carry out a deletion on the note or the function will return an error code.

Parameters : Input : hDB - The handle of the database that contains the note.

NoteID - The ID of the note that you want to delete.

UpdateFlags - Flags that control the manner in which the database is updated. See UPDATE_xxx for further information.

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

NOERROR - The note was successfully deleted. ERR_DIRECTORY - This function is inappropriate for directories. ERR_NOACCESS - You are not authorized to perform that operation. ERR_xxx - STATUS returned from a lower level Notes function. This value can be passed to OSLoadString to obtain a text string that can be presented in a dialog box or log entry.

Sample Usage :

if (error = NSFNoteDeleteExtended (db_handle, note_id, UPDATE_SHARE_SECOND))
    NSFDbClose (db_handle);
    return (ERR(error));
