Script Question

Hello

why does the following code place the response document if the parent document is new with the document below the correct document and when it is old (or been created prior) it places the response document in the correct place??

ValidityCheck = Doc.Validity(0)
      If (Validity <> ValidityCheck) And (ValidityCheck = "Invalid") Then
            Dim Values() As String
            Dim LineCount As Integer
            Set View = Db.GetView("(Text Lookup)")
            View.Refresh
            Set Nav = View.CreateViewNav()
            Set Entry = Nav.GetFirst
            LineCount = -1
            Do While Not(Entry Is Nothing)
                  LineCount = LineCount + 1
                  Redim Preserve Values(LineCount)
                  Values(LineCount) = Entry.ColumnValues(0)
                  Set Entry = Nav.GetNext(Entry)
            Loop
            LetterType = Ws.Prompt(PROMPT_OKCANCELLIST, "Select Letter Type", "Select the type of letter you wish to create", "", Values)
            If LetterType = "" Then Exit Sub
            Dim ProfileDoc As NotesDocument
            Set ProfileDoc = Db.GetProfileDocument("ProfileForm", Ses.UserName)
            ProfileDoc.DocumentType = LetterType
            ProfileDoc.Save True, False
            Ws.ComposeDocument "", "", "Letter"
      End If

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

David,

That is the natural behaviour of Lotus Domino. Your current document must be a valid back-end document before you can create a response document on it. If you try creating a resposnse document for an in-memory (a front-end) docuemnt, it will never be associated correctly.

Try saving the current front-end docuemnt (represented by UIDoc) and retrieve the corresponding NoteID for this document. Then pass this NoteID as the forst argument to WS.ComposeDocument
