hi hemanth,
thanks for responding. I meant notes template by document. I need to sign a template (.ntf). i am using C api 6.0.3 NSFNoteSign. Does NSFNoteSign will work on Version 5 of notes? Pls explain what did u mean by Sign method. When i tried signing a template with NSFNoteSign and executed code on version 5, it is giving error "you and signer dont have certificates in common". Pls help.

hi all,
to make my question more clear, i am adding following.

I inserted a Computed Subform in  _CalenderEntry form using C++ API.
But when I open the _CalenderEntry form fron Notes 5 I get Signer Error showing options "Start trusting signer","abort"....

I found out that when _CalenderEntry form's WindowTitle formula is executed, above warning come for @GetProfileField(...) used in that formula.

I haven't changed the WindowTitle formula.
This error is not occuring in notes 6 as i signed computed subform with NSFNoteSign.But the same thing is not working on Notes 5.
Is there some other way to sign in notes 5.
pls help as soon as possible.

i went through the link.Actually, they are doing it through scripting.What method we are following is:
I are opening a database using NSFDbOpen.
Then finding a note by NIFFindDesign..
and then I want to sign that particular note.
The need is to sign it using 6.0.2 C Api toolkit.
