Accessing Notes Databases via VB
Posted on 2000-03-06
I'm having trouble accessing a Notes Database that's on my server, via Visual Basic. I'm sure it's a simple syntax thing, since I have no such problem when the database is in the default directory (Notes/Data) on the Local server. Here's the code:
Dim session As Object, db As Object, view As Object
Set session = CreateObject("Notes.NotesSession")
Set db = session.GETDATABASE("", "Benefit.nsf")
Set view = db.GetView("EmpSS")
This works great since it's the Local server. When I try to go to my server, I get an error trying to set the view, saying the database isn't open. Please let me know what the syntax should be for:
Server = "HUDSON/HudsonGeneral"
Database = "Notes/Data/Apps/Benefit.nsf"
I've tried many variations of the server name & database path, but with no luck.
