Discovered that someone's snooping with my design.  He simply copy it to his local drive and presto !, he started doing a dbase using my own design.

Wish I could get a procedure on how to hide/lock my design so that even when someone copy my dbase, he cannot still see it.

Put your original design in a template and replace the design. When you do that remeber to check the option "Hide Formulas and LotusScript"

Hello jbohol,

For hiding the design of your db u need to first create a template (.ntf) file. Once u have created the template file. Create a new database (.nsf) using that template but click on the "Hide formulas and LotusScript" checkbox option. This will create a new database from ur template, but the design will be hidden.

Hope this will help u out

amit,

I believe nimrodo already stated this 2hrs and 45 minutes before you, albeit you spell it out a little more clearer, but the message is still murky not crystal clear.

jbohol,

In case the message is not clear, here are the links to Lotus' documentation on hiding the design.

Thanks stharris, you made the procedures very much clear.  Yah, you're right, amit_dutta's answer is good but somehow I got lost in the middle.

Anyway, amit_dutta's, I'm very much thankful for taking time to answer my question. I hope you won't get offended with stharris comment.

Both of you really did a good job.
How I wish I could divide the points to both of you.  Thanks a lot guys!

No worries ibohol, as long as your happy with the results that's what really matters not the points.

No offense Amit, just letting you know that people appreciate clear and concise answers, and usually reward you for it.
