Do you know of any tool that helps in selecting a document and then showing a list of fields in it and have one at a time modify the field value or delete a field completely ?
Pl provide me with the name or link of the tool or the code.

If you also know how to prevent a FT index from getting it corrupt. please let me know, that would be helpful. Let us also say, if it is corrupt somehow how to find out about it  automatically and fix it automatically as well ?
I will raise the point to double if the answer will help things to work.

Thanks !

To automatically fix the full text corruption run these commands on your server scheduled mostly mid-night

Run Updall to fix corrupted views and full-text indexes and then run Fixup to fix corrupted views and documents and finally
Compact task on server

Well.. one of Fixup or Updall, deletes the corrupt documents automatically. How to prevent that from happening ?

About the edit document fields 3.0. It is great ! i found it but i need earlier version which is used with R5. This version 3.0 has some r6 functions.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

The best document field editor out there is the NotesManager freebie on http://www.MartinScott.com

If you get it, say hi to Jamie for me.

I m stuck with one problem regarding this, Is there a way using lotus script or formula to get a handle on document thru a selected document from @picklist ?

I am doing this, but don't know where to go from here..

Set uidoc = ws.CurrentDocument
Set doc = uidoc.document
Dim TempDoc As NotesDocument
If ws.dialogbox("DocSelect",True, True,False,False,False,False,"Specify a field",doc, True ) Then

'<I don't know what to use here>, DocSelect is a form with a field using @Picklist for document selection from a view. I want when i close this dialog box, i have the handle to the document that was selected from the picklist. '      
End If

Use picklistcollection to get document handle


Set notesDocumentCollection = notesUIWorkspace.PickListCollection( type% [,multipleSelection ] [, server$ ] [, databaseFileName$ ] [, viewName$ ] [, title$ ] [, prompt$ ] [, Singlecategory$ ] )

Thanks Hemantha !
Even though i am now getting the document handle. I have lotus script code stored in those documents. I want to execute different code depending upon the document the admin is going to select.
Each of these document code is meeting a different purpose to be executed from an agent.

Just want to clarify more...I don't want to change any design code every time i decide to make a code change. That requires a release of application everytime to implement every time. That is why i want to make the code dynamically stored in a document and use it / call it from an agent/ button.

There is a way you can evaluate a text as script and I am not sure how helpful that would be ?

Check for Execute function in lotus script.

What it does is it accepts a script text and evaluates it.. the scope is limited, that is the variables defined in this cannot be referenced externally. For further info/examples look into help
