Parent and response documents...

Scenario:
I copy a document via back-end to another database.
The response of the coped document is then copied as well and made as response documents to the newly copied document.
This code always worked before, it just now started with the following error:
"Parent and response documents must be in the same database"
I ran through the code with the script debugger and both documents are in the same database and on the same server.
This is the line of code generating the error:
Call NewResponseDoc.MakeResponse( NewParentDoc )

Any ideas?

The problem is NewResponseDoc exists in different server/database and NewParentDoc exists on different server/database. Correcting that to one source db will eliminate this problem.

PS: NotesDocument.ParentDatabase method will give you the database the document is created or saved.

The code u used to check:
If NewResponseDoc.ParentDatabase.Server <> NewParentDoc.ParentDatabase.Server Then
  Messagebox("Wrong server")
Else
  Messagebox("Right server")
End If

If NewResponseDoc.ParentDatabase.FilePath <> NewParentDoc.ParentDatabase.FilePath Then
  Messagebox("Wrong FilePath")
Else
  Messagebox("Right FilePath")
End If

Both messageboxes shows correct.

I checked in the scrip debugger as well, the databases are the same...

Any other ideas?

I found the problem.
I create the NewParentDoc in a Sub (Script library)
In this sub I declare the database.
This sub calls another sub passing the NewParentDoc as parameter.
In this sub I declare the database again as the db are not declared as global.  This seemed to cause the problem.
I now tried declaring the db as global and it worked.
I tried passing the db as a parameter ant this worked as well.

It seemed like when you declare the db in diff, subs, the code
"Call NewResponseDoc.MakeResponse( NewParentDoc )"
will give an error....strange.

Thanks anyway

Yup, seemed like when the same database is declared in 2 diff. routines, the MakeResponse method does not work.

Thanks for the feedback, the fault were resolved before I got your answer, but I will allocate the points to you.

Thanks for the feedback.

Seems to be a bug:
http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/46dom.nsf/55c38d716d632d9b8525689b005ba1c0/d5000365f9ed039a8525679a005c9ceb?OpenDocument

My recomandation would be to use separate instance variables for documents when switching trough a document collection.
For example:
 Set doc = dc.GetNextDocument(doc)
does work, but should be:
 Set docB = dc.GetNextDocument(docA)

This is of course only a guess where this problems come from :-)
