Scraping from a Lotus notes form to an Access table

OK...I'm trying to extract information from a Lotus Notus form and write it into an access database
for storage for reporting.  For example.... I have a lotus notes form called CreditScore  
fields txtloannumber
      txtcustomer
      txtscore
      txtapprover

I would like to have this information written into an access table upon hitting a button on a form within
Access

 Form Name:  FRMCreditscore
 fields  txtloannumber
         txtcustomer
         txtscore
         txtapprover

  button: btnscrape

I'm hoping you could assist me with the coding based on the above information.  Your assistance is greatly
appreciated.  Thanks

I would just use an ODBC driver and then you can kick off an access query that uses the driver.  That would be the easiest solution.  There's also solutions that don't require ODBC:

On Error Goto errorHandler
     

'get a handle to the current document
Set doc = workspace.CurrentDocument

'get a handle to the Access table
Set qry.Connection = con
Set result.Query = qry
     
'replace in quotes the name of the ODBC data source you have set up
con.ConnectTo("AccessDB")

'get a handle to the table you want to write to....replace table with the correct name
qry.SQL = "SELECT * FROM Table"
result.Execute
     
'add a row to the access table
result.AddRow

'add the values to the table    
Call result.SetValue("txtcustomer", doc.txtcustomer(0))
Call result.SetValue("txtscore", doc.txtscore(0))
Call result.SetValue("txtapprover", doc.txtapprover(0))

'update the table
result.UpdateRow

'close the table
result.Close(DB_CLOSE)

'close the ODBC connection
con.Disconnect
Exit Sub

Hi heselton,

Although I cannot give you a specific example, there is a IBM Redbook "COM Together with Domino" that explains how to use Visual Basic to access Lotus Notes data.

http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/pubs/pdfs/redbooks/sg245670.pdf

Hope this helps,

Melissa
