I am using C API and for specific NSF (containing large no of Docs 710, and View + folders = 47), I am getting "Maximum number of memory segments that Notes can support has been exceeded" error. I am generally getting this error in CDBITMAPSEGMENT,  NSFNoteOpen etc.
Any workarround....

that does not sound right, since 710 docs is NOT a lot for lotus notes.

I would check if there is anything you can change in the memory settings of the API.

I hope this helps !

It's not the number of documents.  I have some databases that are approaching 1 million records.

It's could be the folder count, but I doubt it.  We've had that error message in a shared mail file that had hundreds of folders.  It turned out to be a Windows limitation, not Notes.  If this is caused by the folder count, you would get the same error if you opened the database in a Notes client.

Do you have the same problem accessing other databases with this code?

Post your code.

Ok experts,
I solved it. I forget to call ConvertNotesBitmapFree after ConvertNotesBitmap...and huge numbers of handles were reserved and unfree. Thanx both of you.
