The server and client has just been installed.  I have set up a stand alone server for development work and with the first form, I get this problem.

Find where your notes executable is stored. For me its in the Notes46 directory and I will use this for my example. Look for nhttp.exe in this directory (it might be hidden).

Then create a shortcut to it. In the target type:

C:\notes46\nhttp.exe preview

in Start in :

C:\notes46

Then just click on the shortcut before you start your client(you will be prompted for your password).  That should take care of your problem

I fixed this problem some days ago, but was unable to delete/withdraw the question.  The problem was solved by creating a Location and then changing the entry for Internet Browser from Notes to Netscape Navigator in the Location form.

However, if you want the 100 points, I have another problem that I need help on.
I am crreating a homepage with 3 frames (the top frame is the header, the lower left is where the links are and the lower right is the display frame.  
The homepage database was created using Web Pages(R4.6) template.

I am trying to find out how to embed a view of a completely different database in the lower left frame.  I could create a link to the database, but it has been decided that a view of a particular database should be displayed automatically when the homepage is displayed.

I hope you can help.

You can't use web pages template to accomplish this. This needs a work around .

Thanks for your input. I have found out the hardway that I can't do it.  I have worked out how to create links to individual views in non-current databases, but I would still like to know if it is possible to have the views of non-current databases displayed when a homepage is called-up.  Perhaps you can guide me to the right path -- if there is one.

Hi
Here is the example to create three frames in a window

Creat a form with HTML on it similar to this

"<html> <head> <title>TITLE</title> </head>
<frameset frameborder="1" framespacing="3" rows="15%,*">

<frame marginwidth="9" marginheight="0"  src="xxxxxxxxxxx" name="NavTop"  scrolling="NO" NORESIZE>

<frameset frameborder="3" framespacing="3" cols="20%,*">
<frame marginwidth="4" marginheight="0"        src="xxxxxxxxxxxxx" name="Navigator" scrolling="Auto">
<frame marginwidth="9" marginheight="0"        src="xxxxxxxxxxxx" name="View" scrolling="Auto"> </frameset>

</frameset>

<noframes>      <body>    <B>This browser does not support frames, try to upgrade browser for frame support</B>      </body>     </noframes> </html>"

Inplace of xxxxxxxx use syntax

http://host/database/viewname?Openview

Save this form as a document and open it when the database is launched

Good Luck

This will open the view in a frame as the source for that frame.  What I want is that the views of more than one database be displayed in sections when the home page is opened. I want to create a section which, when the triangle is clicked on, the section opens and displays the views of the database for that particular section.  There will be two or three sections each with its oen datadbase.

Hi Chris

From your comment I infer that you need something similar to a portfolio database. I don't hink so that kind of functionality is possible simply by using notes. The possible solution (may be only one) is to built a form with links to the views in other databases, categorized as sections and pass the form name with openform command.


Hope this might help u a lot.

Good Luck,
~Hemanth
