Hello

My problem is the following.
I want to create a database out of a template file. because i have to create like 20 databases i have written a little program.
But i get the message
"database databasename hasn't been openened yet"

I have tried template.Open("","Templates/" + doc.Template(0))

But this didn't solve it.
How can i make it work.
I have used the following code:

Dim template As New NotesDatabase( "", "Templates/" + doc.Template(0))
          Dim brandNewDb As NotesDatabase
          Set brandNewDb = template.CreateFromTemplate( Server, Map +"/" + doc.Database(0), True )
          brandNewDb.Title = doc.Titel(0)


Thank you very much

greetingz Paul

I hope it is your "/" which is causing the problem.

The path is referred by backslash "\"

Dim template As New NotesDatabase( "", "Templates\" + doc.Template(0))
         Dim brandNewDb As NotesDatabase
         Set brandNewDb = template.CreateFromTemplate( Server, Map +"\" + doc.Database(0), True )
         brandNewDb.Title = doc.Titel(0)

Yes,  as Hermantha said, the backslash is part of the problem,

However the specific error you're getting is that you have to OPEN the database before you attempt to create a document in it.

So, the code should look like this:

        Dim template As New NotesDatabase( "", "Templates\" +   doc.Template(0))
        Dim brandNewDb As New NotesDatabase("","")      
     brandNewdb.open( Server, Map +"\" + doc.Database(0))
     if brandNewdb.IsOpen then
             brandNewDb.Title = doc.Titel(0)
     else
          messagebox "Database could not be opened"
     end if

or, you could do it this way:

     Dim brandNewDb As New NotesDatabase("","")
       
     if (brandNewdb.Open( Server, Map +"\" + doc.Database(0))) then
             brandNewDb.Title = doc.Title(0)
     else
          messagebox "Database could not be opened"
     end if


If you still get the error, then check to make sure that the person running the code has permission to open the database.  

Try this and see if it works,

The user doesn't know that he was asking a silly question and when pointed out felt it is not worth grading this question (as it doesn't cost them anything) so this is left to the moderators discretion.

Hope it helps you.
