How do I index a case database?
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.
Click on Update full-text index.
This either updates an existing index, or, presents the Notes indexing dialog box to create it.
Select the option highlighted and click OK.
Indexing may take some time depending when the database was last indexed; the status bar will update when indexing is complete.
The Notes properties box is context sensitive and displays information about the currently selected object.
Right click on the Workspace and choose Workspace Properties.
The Notes properties box is displayed and shows information about the Workspace itself.
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.
- Click on the magnifying glass / Search tab and the properties box changes to indexing options.
- Click on Create Index as the database is currently not indexed ...
And the Create Index dialog is shown as before. Select the option highlighted and click OK.
As shown before, the status bar will update when indexing is complete. Indexing can take a while on large databases that are many gb in size -- even an hour or more.
You can also use the database properties box to check indexing status.
Click on Count unindexed documents. The count shows one unindexed document remains. A few seconds later, click again and the count shows All are indexed.
