Creating new views

I'm trying to figure out an easy way to rename a number of views that I have already created, to display under a seperate category.

For example:

I currently have the following views:

>All Jobs
  >by Primary
  >by Secondary
  >by
  . . .
>All Programs
  >by Contact
  . . .

I want to rename these views so all have the prefix Documentation/

Here is how I want to display my view after I rename them:

>Documentation
  >All Jobs
    >by Primary
    >by Secondary
    >by
    . . .
  >All Programs
    >by Contact
    . . .

Is there an easy way to do this, without opening every single view and changing the name manually?

Rename one view and move all other view into this category.

Thats the easiest way i could think of...

What do you mean by, "move all other view into this category."  Is there a way to move a view, other than by manually changing the name?

Could I set up an agent to do something like this?

Just for your information:
You can only read the view names using a script agent, you cannot rename the view from script (the property is Read-Only).

A sample script to display all view names in the database in a messagebox:

Sub Initialize
    Dim session as New NotesSession
    Dim db as NotesDatabase
    Dim views as String

    views=Chr(13) 'Set views to an empty line
    'Get the currently open database
    Set db=session.CurrentDatabase
    'Go through all views in the database
    Forall v In db.views
        'Add a newline and the view name to the string
        views=views & Chr(13) & v.Name
    End Forall
    'Display a message box displaying the database title and all view names
    Messagebox "Available views in " & db.Title & " : " & views
End Sub

Question is answered by yours truly, just thought I'd give a little insight as to why it can't be done using LotusScript (and maybe get some appreciation with a little donation in a points for Jerrith question).

Donation only if you can spare them and feel my comment was useful of course, sauce12 :-)

Any objections should be posted here in the next 4 days. After that time, the question will be closed.
