Hi,

I am running LotusScript code that extracts data from a document and puts in Excel. Problem is it fails when it tries to extract the field names and it pops up with a window with this error: "%s: %s" What does this mean?

Here's a snippet of code below. If I a step through the code, the error pops up at the line where it says, "If x = -1 Then". There's at least 234 fields(items) it is trying to extract..would the no of fields be the problem? Most of the fields have no data.  Thanks.

'Get Field Names that will become column headings
x = -1
Forall i In ndocData.Items
If Left(i.Name, 4) = "xml_" Then
x = x + 1
Redim Preserve itemNames(x)
itemNames(x) = i.Name
End If
End Forall

If x = -1 Then
Msgbox "No data fields found!"
Exit Sub
End If

When you are stepping through the code and you receive the error, what is the current value of x?

Rewrite your checking statement from:
If x = -1 Then
to:
If (x < 0) Then

Also insert for debugging purposes after "xml_" string checking line a found trace, like:
MsgBox "Field: " & i.Name

It is also a good practice to have the setting:
Option Declare
set :-)

Are you programming in Notes.Designer or in Excel VBA?

If there are 234 fields to go through, I'd suggest using print "Field: " & i.Name in stead of the message box, unless of course you want to click away a message box 234 times :-)

The debugging info will be available in notes log and in the status bar of the client running the agent.

Regards,
JM

P.S.: Personally I prefer to write debugging info to an agent log, if you don't know how and want me to tell you, just let me know...
