how can I capture the "added to" date field value?

We had an old replica of a database replicate with a newer replica.  Because 200+ of the deletion stubs had expired, several previously-deleted docs were reintroduced.

If I look at the properties tab of an individual document, I can see the "added" date, which is this morning.  I need to find all of the docs "added" this morning so I can delete them again.

How do I do this?

In the source replication expiry settings, change 90 days to 0 and then replicate and see if that wil fix the problem

Hemantha is refering to the replication settings value "purge documents older than X days"  Probably a bad idea -- if you have 91 days old documents that you want to keep (i.e., ligitimate documents) would also be purged.  And you would need to do this on every affected replica!

Better idea: Make use a of a Note sbug that I dearly hope they never fix.

There are four dates associated with a document:
1) Universal created
2) Local created
3) Universal updated
4) Local updated

Thes foru are listed in teh same order on document properties. "Universal" refers to the time associated with the replica the document was created/updated in.  Local refers to the time the document replicated in -- or, will be teh same as universal time if the saev occured in that replica.

@Created returns #1.  @Modfied returns #3.  NotesDocument.LastModified is SUPPOSED TO return #3, but actually returns #4.  So, you can use NotesDocument.LastModified to determine which documents were updated in a particular replica at a particular time.

In your case, #s 2 and 4 would match for a "resurrected" document, because at the time of replication, the document was locally cerated it did not exists because the original document becasme a stub which was then purged, so effectively, the local replica did not "know" this document, and had no match to replicate, and instead added this seemingly new document).  Theerfore, for local purposes, add matches update. #1 and #3 would be the "real" dates for the document, since those are the universal times recorded in the source (old replica).

A little script like his might do the trick:

Dim s as new notesSession
Dim db as notesDatabase
Set db = s.currentDatabase
Dim docs as notesDocumentCOllection
Set docs = db.allDocuments
Dim doc as notesDocument, nextDoc as notesDocument
Set doc = docs.getFirstDocument
const replStart = ... 'timedate
const replEnd = ... 'timedate
Do Until Doc Is Nothing
    Set nextDoc = docs.getNextDocument(doc) 'record it now in case it is deleted during the loop
    If (doc.lastModified>=replStart) and (doc.lastModified<=replEnd) Then
      doc.remove
    End If
    Set doc = nextDoc
Loop

You can do it thru API, if you need the exact code i can send it to you, send me your email address. But how much should i get from it ??

I'm disapointed.  I gave you a script that would easily identify the documents, but you want to go through the API?!
