Notes and SQL
Posted on 1998-10-21
I need to build an application to access data from an SQL database. I´ve made an application that makes an SQL query to an SQL database , but the code is entirely in an agent. And it shows the results in messageboxes.
I´d like to have a screen with a field where someone can fill with the name to be searched, and this name should be passed to the agent. I´d like to show the results in the format of a table too.
I was thinking that if I create a field in a form, in order to people type the name to be searched , it would work, but Notes always ask me to save the document, and I don´t want to have one document for each query people make.
I thought about creating a field in a navigator, so that Notes wouldn´t ask me to save the document. But it doesn´t let me create a field in a navigator.
How can I make it? How can I pass a parameter filled by an user to an agent ?
And how can I format the results in a table , using lotus script ?
Have anybody done an application like this ?
Thanks in advance !
