Important: As of NetSuite 2017.1, the system_notes_custom view should be queried instead of the Notes_system_custom view.

Important: There is no comments column in the system_notes_custom view. Instead, comment data is stored in the operation, value_old, and value_new columns. For example, the comment "Changed from '30' to '100'" has the following values in the system_notes_custom view:
- operation: changed
- value_old: 30
- value_new: 100
Use these columns to query comment data.

Note: The following columns are not present in the system_notes_custom view:
- note_type_extid
- note_type
- note_type_description
- isinactive
- system_use
- date_last_modified
If you need to query these columns, join the notetype view using the note_type_id column. Additionally, there are no note_id or direction columns in the system_notes_custom view.

Note: The following columns have been renamed:
- time_entered is now date_created
- customfield_created_date is now date_customfield_created
- customfield_modified_date is now date_customfield_modified
- customfield_created_by is now customfield_created_by_id
- customfield_modified_by is now customfield_modified_by_id
