    Working through the Notepad tutorial and have a question. When it builds the database with the fields rowid, title, and body - all three are private static final strings. But when a method like fetchnote() runs, it uses a long id to get the note. How does the method get that id if rowid is a string? I would like to modify the tutorial a bit and have an activity call a listactivity. The listactivity will display everything in the database, then, when a user clicks an item, I would like to copy just that entry into a new database and send the row id back to the calling activity. But I can't figure out how to get it to copy the entry into the new database because the tutorial uses a row id to make adjustments and my new database would be blank. Does that make sense? I'm new to this. :)
