A Notes database can be exported to a few standard spreadsheet formats (tab delimited for example). For obvious reasons this will not work with Rich Text fields. I don't know of another way to do a plain export, but there may be ways to import into a different database using ODBC.

R5 has its own indexer multi-database indexing and file systems indexing check out the domidx server task.... This may or may not be useful to you...

The way we get around this problem just to use a spider to index our databases via the web instead of by the file system , this again may or may not be useful in your situation..

you can now export documents (and even design elements) using the dxl tools. I believe that in the next point release 5.03 this will be included into domino.
