Local Address Book in Lotus R5

Hi,

I am using Lotus Notes Client, I have 42 addresses stored in my local address book. Now when I add a new Contact in my address book and while writing a new memo it does not pick the newly added contact from the local addressbook and says "not found".

Also if I change the email address of a particular person, it picks the old email address whereas if i see in the addressbook the address which is shown is the new one.

Could somebody help?

Rgds,

I am confused.
Are you using your personal address book or a local replica of the public address book?
Check your name lookup settings in your location document and make sure that you've set the lookup local first option.
Also check in user preferences to see if you have specified the correct location for your personal address book.

Press the adressbook icon on the left of your screen (3rd icon). Does it open the addressbook you axpected or a different one?

Jerrith,

It is a addressbook stored on my local computer "names.nsf".

The settings you are saying is perfectily ok. It does not happen in all the cases but for a new entry and for an existing entry being modified. Hope it clears your doubt.

It could be a corruption. Goto addressbook, contacts view and hit ctrl+shift+F9. If this doesn't fix your problem then replace the design of the addressbook with Personal Address Book template (pernames.ntf)

Ctrl+shift+f9 does not solve the problem. Please tell me how do i change the design of the addressbook in steps as i do not know anything abt this?

ArunkumarCommented:
check your notes.ini to make sure it points to the names.nsf.

The other way to fix your corrupted local nab is rightclick and replace design using the template.  The personal nab template name should be something like..."pernames.ntf"

you might have an older template design or something...

Try it out.

Select the database

Goto file..database...replace design from the menu. This will prompt a dialog, from the list select personal address book and hit ok. THis will replace the design to that of template.

I vaguely remember a problem once where mail could not be send to an address from the public NAB.... it wasn't the NAB that was corrupted, but the desktop!
Give it a shot..... in the property box, select desktop and hit the compact button.

CRAKCommented:
Check user preferences, under "Mail".... what does it say under "Local address books"?
Is it any different than "names.nsf" (without path) or empty? I assume when you mentioned "local computer 'names.nsf'", you referred to what the database property box gave you!?

Hi Crak, It says names.nsf w/o any path.

Jean Marie GeeraertsApplication EngineerCommented:
As far as I know, when there's just names.nsf specified it's okay.
Now when you've setup lookup in the location document to lookup local first, it should first lookup in your local address book and then in the address book on the server.

But this is info you already knew :-)
