How do I index a case database?
Creating the database index
There are two ways to create the database index and/or update it later.
- We'll first use a MasterFile command to do so.
- Then we'll use the Notes database property box to do the same thing.
Using MasterFile to create the database index
Using the Notes database properties box to create the database index
Depress the database icon and the properties box changes to show information about it. You can also right click on a database icon directly and choose Application > Properties to display its information.
The properties box is persistent and remains visible until you close it. It always displays information about the currently selected object -- for example, if you depress a different database icon, it will change to show details about that database.
Checking indexing status with the database properties box
Remember, server database indexes are updated periodically while local databases must be updated manually.
