Hello Susan,

Yes, it is possible to launch a notes database on startup of notes client. All u need to do is setup an environment variable called "StartupDB" with the replica id of the database u want to launch. Each database has an unique 16 bit replica id, which u can get by viewing the database properties.

If u r using furmula language then u can set the environment variable by using @SetEnvironment("StartupDB"; ReplicaID) function. In script language use session.SetEnvironmentVar("StartupDB", ReplicaID, True)

I hope this will serve ur purpose.
