Lotus Notes Calendar Programming from Visual Basic

We have a VB application that allows a user to schedule a call back to a client.  The user provides call back adte and time, subject line, and add'l notes (to be contained in the body of a 'reminder' calendar entry).The VB code creates an instance of a Lotus Notes workspace and adds a 'reminder' for the user to call back the client. The problem we are experiencing is that we cannot get the add'l notes to add to the 'Body' property of the 'reminder' entry.  When reviewing the property via Notes, the 'Body' feld is set to SEAL. So, I suspect this is causing the issue.  Can anyone assist with updating/setting this flag programmatically so the "body' of the 'reminder' will contain the add'l notes?  Time is of the essence!  

I've included code below.  Thanks for your help.

Private Function ScheduleCallBack() As Boolean
