I actually have one of those around here somewhere, let me check. if not, it is easy enough to write one.
Oh, before I do this... R5 or R6?  And which paraneters do you want to set?

Location -- name, type, ports, mail-local/server, server name, mail file location (the last two can be retrieved from Person doc, assuming user already has access to it).  Often, the best option is to copy the current location doc, and change the minimum needed.

Connection -- need server name, address.

I am sending out a memo to people that will be testing a new application.

It is on a test sever and there is no cross certification between the TestPMO and the SITA domain.
I figure the easiest is to have the folks press abutton that will create anew location document and a connection document if one doesn't already exist to allow them into my domain. I will also be sending a ID that the location document will automatically open when changed.

Ok here is the quickie...

Which does both connection and location doc setup

Sub Click(Source As Button)
      Dim ws As New NotesUIWorkspace
      Dim db As NotesDatabase
      Dim view As NotesView
      Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument
      Dim doc As NotesDocument
      Dim num As Integer
      Set db = New NotesDatabase( "", "names.nsf" )
      Set view = db.GetView( "Connections" )
      Set doc = view.GetFirstDocument
      While Not doc Is Nothing
            Call doc.Remove(True)
            Set doc = view.GetFirstDocument
      Set uidoc = ws.CurrentDocument
      Set doc = uidoc.Document
      num = 1
      While uidoc.FieldGetText( "Server_" + Cstr( num% ) ) <> ""
            Call CreateConnection( db, "0", "", uidoc.FieldGetText( "Server_" + Cstr( num% )), uidoc.FieldGetText( "ServerAddress_" + Cstr( num% )), "*" )
            If doc.PassthruYN(0) = "1" Then
                  Call CreateConnection( db, "2", doc.Passthru(0), uidoc.FieldGetText( "Server_" + Cstr( num% )), "", "Internet" )
            End If
            num% = num% +1
      Call CreateConnection( db, "0", "", doc.Sametime(0), doc.ServerAddress_ST(0), "*" )
End Sub

Function CreateConnection( Database As NotesDatabase, CType As String, PTServer As String, SName As String, SAddress As String, OFLocation As String )
      Dim doc As NotesDocument
      Set doc = New NotesDocument( Database )
      If CType = "0" Then
            doc.OptionalNetworkAddress = ""
            doc.PassthruServer = PTServer
      End If
      doc.Form = "Connection"
      doc.ConnectionType = "Local Area Network"
      doc.Destination = "Developer1/TestPMO"
      doc.LanPortName = "TCPIP"
      doc.ConnectionLocation = "TestPMO"
      doc.Source = "*"
      doc.ConnectionRecordFirst = "1"
      Call doc.ComputeWithForm( True, True )
      Call doc.Save(True, True)
End Function

I need help with this still

What is the problem James ?

Is the code not working or giving you errors ?

When Hemanth beat me to the punch, I was going to abandon.  But I like picking apart others' code.  For example:

>      While Not doc Is Nothing
>           Call doc.Remove(True)
>           Set doc = view.GetFirstDocument
>      Wend    

This is a bad thing.  It says, "to bad if you had any old connection docs, I think yuo shoudln't have any."  Great.  In other words, if I'm not smart enough to figure out whether I'm replacing a particular connection (i.e., user already has a connection to a particular server), then I think I'll just trash 'em all.

Next, that whole      While uidoc.FieldGetText( "Server_" + Cstr( num% ) ) <> ""
bit is a bit too much for you.  It assumes yu have some sort of "setup doc" that describes all the connections yuo want to make.  Well, you don't have that.  All you need is the line:

               Call CreateConnection( db, "2", "pass thru name", "destination server", "", "Location name" )

Of course you are not using a pass trhu server.  So, the "2" is wrong (s/b "0"), and most likely that "" s/b the IP address.  So, we would get:

               Call CreateConnection( db, "0", "", "destination server", "destination address", "Location name" )
