How do I recreate a corrupted database index?
Occasionally a database index can get corrupted and prevent searching. In this case, the index needs to be deleted and then recreated.
Using the Notes database properties box to delete 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.
Recreating the database index
Remember, server database indexes are updated periodically while local databases must be updated manually.
