Agents

I am new to LotusScript. Someone please help

I have an employee database application (a form) where the employee details data is entered manually by the users. The form has fields like dept, designation, location, region etc which is picked up from the respective masters using DBColumn. The names of the dept, designation etc are changed from time to time. If a dept is called 'tech' today, it might be called 'tech services' tomorrow. Changes can only be made to the dept name and not to the dept code. On change of dept name, if the user presses the update button, i would like to call an agent which would fetch all the existing records with say 'tech' and replace them with say 'tech services'. I have written the following agent. But it is bringing the documents in front of the screen while the agent is running. How can I make it run in the backend without bringing the documents in front. Also the agent needs to be web compatible. The following is the code I have used :

Sub Initialize
     Dim session As New NotesSession
     Dim db As NotesDatabase
     Dim view As NotesView
     Dim doc As NotesDocument,curdoc As NotesDocument
     Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
     Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument
     Dim vc As NotesViewEntryCollection
     
     Set db=session.currentDatabase
     Set view=db.getview("EmpV")
     Set vc=view.allentries
     Set doc=view.GetFirstDocument
     Set curdoc = session.DocumentContext
     
     While Not (doc Is Nothing)
     if curdoc.DepartmentCode(0)=doc.HidDeptCode(0)
        Then
     Set uidoc=workspace.editdocument(True,doc)
     Call uidoc.FieldSetText("EDepartment",curdoc.DepartmentDescription(0))
     Call uidoc.save(True,True)
        Call uidoc.close
          End If
          Set doc=view.GetNextDocument(doc)
     Wend
End Sub


Note : Hid DeptCode is the hidden field name in the employee form which stores the numeric value of the dept assigned.

Do not use uidoc and fieldsettext.

Instead convert the uidoc to a otherdoc as follows...

Set otherdoc = uidoc.Document

now set the uidocs field as follows.....

otherdoc.FieldName = "VALUE"

now save the otherdoc as follows.....

call otherdoc.Save(True,False)

Thats it!

Good Luck!
Arun.
{S: Just avoid all the ui contexts...that is all needed.)

Check this one:
Sub Initialize
  Dim session As New NotesSession
  Dim db As NotesDatabase
  Dim view As NotesView
  Dim doc As NotesDocument
  Dim curdoc As NotesDocument
 
  Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
  Set view = db.GetView("EmpV")
  Set doc = view.GetFirstDocument
  Set curdoc = session.DocumentContext
  While Not (doc Is Nothing)
    If (curdoc.DepartmentCode(0) = doc.HidDeptCode(0)) Then
      doc.EDepartment = curdoc.DepartmentDescription(0)
      Call doc.Save(True,True)
    End If
    Set doc=view.GetNextDocument(doc)
  Wend
End Sub

I think this is going to work well the only problem being that every time a document will be opened when the condition matches.
Just remove the line view.Allentries.
In any case u r browsing thru every doc.

Thank you for the points, but some kind feedback would also do well (if it does not cost too much of your valuable time :-)
