Function : Note
NSFNoteUpdateExtended - Write in-memory note to on-disk database.

#include <nsfnote.h>

    NOTEHANDLE  hNote,
    DWORD  UpdateFlags);
Description :

This function writes the in-memory version of a note to its database. Prior to issuing this call, a new note (or changes to a note) are not a part of the on-disk database. This function allows using extended 32-bit DWORD update options, as described in the entry UPDATE_xxx.

You should also consider updating the collections associated with other Views in a database via the function NIFOpenCollection or NIFUpdateCollection, if you have added and/or deleted a substantial number of documents. If the Server's Indexer Task does not rebuild the collections associated with the database's Views, the first user to access a View in the modified database might experience an inordinant delay, while the collection is rebuilt by the Notes Workstation (locally) or Server Application (remotely).

Parameters : Input : hNote - Handle of note to write to database.

UpdateFlags - Flags that control the manner in which the note update is done. The flags are defined in UPDATE_xxx and may be ORed together.

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


ERR_SUMMARY_TOO_BIG - "Field is too large (32K) or field's column in selection formula is too large". You have appended more than about 16184 bytes to this note in items that have the ITEM_SUMMARY flag set. API functions such as NSFItemSetText set the ITEM_SUMMARY flag by default. Work around this problem by using NSFItemAppend to append some of these fields to the note without setting the ITEM_SUMMARY flag in the item_flags argument to NSFItemAppend.
