Creating a scheduled Agent !!!

I need  to write an agent that loops through all the documents in a view (parent and child) and
sees if the "date_expired" field is with in 5 days of current date and then send out an email.
I would appreciate a basic skeleton code, something to start me off.

Are u looking for something like this:


      Dim session As New notessession
      Dim db As notesdatabase
      Set db = session.currentdatabase
      Set view = db.getview("<yourviewname>")
      Set doc  = view.getfirstdocument
      While Not doc Is Nothing
            dates = "10/27/2003" ' instead of this replace it iwth ur doc.<fieldname>
            Set t = New notesdatetime(dates)
            Set t1 = New notesdatetime(Today)
            If t1.TimeDifference(t)/86400 > 5 Then
                  Set maildoc = db.createdocument
                  maildoc.form = "memo"
                  maildoc.subject ="<somesubject>"
                  Set rtitem = New NotesRichTextItem ( maildoc, "Body" )
                  Call rtitem.AppendDocLink _
                  ( view, view.Name & " in " & db.Title )
                  maildoc.send False
            End If
            Set doc = view.getnextdocument(doc)
      Wend

heres the code I'm using, but I'm getting a type mismatch error

Sub Initialize
      Dim session As New notessession
      Dim db As notesdatabase
      Set db = session.currentdatabase
      Set view = db.getview("Label Management")
      Set doc  = view.getfirstdocument
      While Not doc Is Nothing
            dates = doc.fldExpiry ' instead of this replace it iwth ur doc.<fieldname>
            Set t = New notesdatetime(dates)
            Set t1 = New notesdatetime(Today)
            If t1.TimeDifference(t)/86400 < 5 Then
                  Set maildoc = db.createdocument
                  maildoc.form = "memo"
                  maildoc.subject ="Expired Docs"
                  maildoc.SendTo ="Jon Doe"
                  Set rtitem = New NotesRichTextItem ( maildoc, "Body" )
                  Call rtitem.AppendDocLink _
                  ( view, view.Name & " in " & db.Title )
                  maildoc.send False
            End If
            Set doc = view.getnextdocument(doc)
      Wend
      End SubNavigator
End Sub

Also, I need to send a list of all the expired documents in one email
not a separate email for each expired doc.

Thanks for your help

Hemantha's code wll work much better for you, and you can set an action to send newsetter, which will show the results as a document with a docLink to each found item.
