Q

Adding text in the Special Instructions field

I am attempting to add text in the Special Instructions field, but I cannot. Below is a copy of the code that I am attempting to use. Please help if you can.
 newdoc.Sendto = uidoc.FieldGetText
("TestField")
 newdoc.subject = uidoc.FieldGetText
("TestField2")
 Call rtitem.AppendText
("Special Notes/Instructions:")
 Call rtitem.AddnewLine(1)
 Call rtitem.AppendText("")
 'Call rtitem.AppendText("TestField3")
 newdoc.AppendText = uidoc.FieldGetText
("TestField3")
 'newdoc.instructions = doc.TestField3
 Call newdoc.Send(False)

The problem is that you have not defined a rich text item to update. Add the following before your first call of the rtitem:
 Set rtitem = New NotesRichTextItem ( newdoc, "Body" )
