EnsurePageVerb complex Type [OneNote 2003 XML Schema Reference]

Office 2003

Defines a command to verify the specified page exists, and if it does not, create it. This includes creating any folders or sections specified in the file path that do not already exist.

You are required to pass OneNote a string representing the path to the desired page, as well as a GUID for that page. If the path is not fully-qualified, OneNote assumes the string starts from the notebook root location for the user. Additionally, you can specify the title, date, reading direction, and page placement relative to other pages in the notebook.

By default, OneNote inserts each new page at the end of the specified section. If you specify a page GUID for the insertAfter attribute, OneNote inserts the new page as a sub-page of the page whose GUID you specified. In such cases, the sub-page shares the title and date with the other pages in the page series.
