I am now working in Notes 4.06. I insert doclinks to my document and save both, frond- and backend. One can do it several times and it works very well. In another field, there is the possiblity to insert an attachment. If there is an attachement, I can't close the document without the question wether i want to save, although the document is already saved. If I answer with "no" everythings ok, I say "yes" and will get a safeconflict. Which way will close my document without saving?

Put an extra Field on that Form.
Field name has to be: SaveOptions
Field value has to be: "0"
Best is to make this field hidden.

But be aware that with this field you are NEVER again asked to save the document opened by thís Form nor are you able to save it by CTRL-S or menu commands.
The only way is to save trough your scripts you already use.

Good luck,

another option would be to define this field SaveOptions with the default value set to "1"
So after your script save the document, then does your script also switch the SaveOptions to "0" value to avoid unneccessary save question.
