Hi,
i have an uidoc(doc1). With an action button in it i want to create another document(doc2), copy some of the field values of the uidoc(doc1) to the new doc(doc2), close the uidoc(doc1), open the new doc(doc2) as uidoc(doc2) then delete the parent document(doc1).
I cant delete the parent doc 'cause it says can't delete document that has been instenciated by a uidoc or something like that.
I have looked to the help, it says you must close the uidoc, find again the the by it's universalID and then i will we able to delete it...it didn't work.
Good luck,
Koray.

What it is saying is that you have obtained the the doc1 notesdocument object via a notesuidocument and therefore  you can't delete it here is a work around , what you need to do is  close the uidoc1 , get the noteid of doc1,  remove the reference to the doc1 and get the reference to doc1 via a backend class like a notesdatabase and then delete it

heres the code to do it


Dim Sess As new Notessession
Dim ThisDB As NotesDatabase
Dim noteID as String

Set ThisDB = Sess.CurrentDatabase

..... Your Code goes here .....


' This gets the noteID to the document
 noteID = doc1.noteid
' This remove the in memory object            
  Delete doc1
' This closes the uidoc1
 Call uidoc1.Close()

' This finds the document via a backend class and deletes it
Set doc1 = thisDB.getdocumentbyid (noteID)
Call doc1.remove(True)
