The description you gave is clear. But how far did you get yourself? Why are you using C? What are you going to use the application for? Is it impossible to do it inside Notes, in LotusScript?

By the way, there are 2 API's: the C-API and the C++-API, less complete but easier to understand form a LotusScript perspective.

Hi SueshPadmanabhan,
to access the calendar profile doc use LNDatabase object's method:
    LNSTATUS OpenCalendarProfileDocument(const LNString &owner, LNCalendarProfileDocument *profile)

to change the profile's item's value use:
    LNSTATUS SetProfileField(const LNString &fieldname, const LNItem &item)

which is LNProfileDocument method (LNCalendarProfileDocument base class).

Hope this helps,

you have the example of getting the mail db's calendar profile in the sample program (commes with C++ API) called "profile" (NotesCppFolder\Samples\profile).

Instead of method OpenCalendarProfileDocument( "", prof ) you can call:

    LNSTATUS OpenProfileDocument (const LNString &name, const LNString &owner, LNProfileDocument *profile)

    - "CalendarProfile" or LNPROFILECALENDAR as name argument,
    - empty string as owner,
    - profile as declared LNProfileDocument* (here the profile pointer will be stored)

After that use GetProfileField and SetProfileField to read/modify the items.

Hope this helps,
