I need to be able to create a document in a notes database using a particular form named "test", set its variables to specific values, and perform a file attachment.

With the below code, I can successfully create a ducument, but I have been unable to create a document using a specific form.

Would like to create from scratch, but if I ahve to find the last one and clone it, etc. that's okay.  I just need something that works.


Note:

I am doing this from a VB app.


Sub cmdOpen_Click()


Dim db As New Domino.NotesDatabase
Dim session As New Domino.NotesSession

Dim object As Domino.NotesEmbeddedObject
Dim Body As Domino.NotesRichTextItem


' Set up error handling
On Error GoTo errhandler

' Create a Notes session
Set session = New Domino.NotesSession
 
 ' Initialize Notes Session
Call session.Initialize("thepassword")
 
 'Open the Notes Database
Set db = session.GetDatabase("", "test5.nsf")
 
If db.IsOpen = True Then
   Set doc = db.CreateDocument
    'Dim doc As New NotesDocument


     'doc.Form = "test"
     'doc.duration = 5
     'doc.JobCat = "test2"
     'doc.employee = s.UserName
     'doc.Customer = "Isn't this Cool?"
     'doc.Start = Now()
     'doc.End = Now()
     
    If (Body Is Nothing) Then Set Body = doc.CreateRichTextItem("Body")
    Set object = Body.EmbedObject(1454, "", "c:\test.txt")
    Call doc.Save(True, False)

             
 Else
        ' Put a messagebox or something here alerting user to fact that database could not bve opened.
 End If



 'Clean up memory
 Set doc = Nothing
 Set db = Nothing
 Set object = Nothing

Exit Sub

The COM vary little bit, here is how your code becomes a workable one.

Dim session
Dim db
Dim object
Dim Body


' Set up error handling
'On Error GoTo errhandler

' Create a Notes session
Set session = CreateObject("Lotus.NotesSession")

' Initialize Notes Session
Call session.InitializeUsingNotesUserName("USER", "PASSWORD")
' Call session.Initialize("thepassword")



'Open the Notes Database
Set db = session.GetDatabase("", "test.nsf")

If db.IsOpen = True Then
    Set doc = db.CreateDocument
    Call doc.ReplaceItemValue("Form", "Test")
    Call doc.ReplaceItemValue("Duration", 5)
    Call doc.ReplaceItemValue("JobCat", "test2")
    Call doc.ReplaceItemValue("employee", session.UserName)
    Call doc.ReplaceItemValue("Customer", "Isn't this Cool?")
    Call doc.ReplaceItemValue("Start", Now())
    Call doc.ReplaceItemValue("End", Now())
    Set Body = doc.CreateRichTextItem("Body")
    Set object = Body.EmbedObject(1454, "", "c:\test.txt")
    Call doc.Save(True, False)
Else
       ' Put a messagebox or something here alerting user to fact that database could not bve opened.
End If



'Clean up memory
Set doc = Nothing
Set db = Nothing
Set object = Nothing
