<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the file was deleted,
  • False otherwise. If an error occurs, the ErrorOccurred variable is set to True. To get more details on the error, use ErrorInfo with the errMessage constant.
<Session identifier>: Integer
Session ID to be used. This identifier is returned by EmailStartNotesSession or NotesOpenDatabase.
<Lotus Notes item>: Character string
Name of the Lotus Notes item (Rich Text) to which the file is attached.
Each item of a Notes document can contain up to 256 attached files.
To know the name and type of the items in the current Notes document, use NotesListItem.
<File index>: Character string
Index of the file to delete. This subscript corresponds to the rank of the file in the list of files for the Lotus Notes item (for example, the subscript of the 3rd attached file will be 3).
Caution: The indices of the files are modified when a file is deleted.
