Hi

I have a question about personal views

If the original was Desktop and the design changes do I loose the docs that were there.Is there anyway to reset and retain the info??


From Hemanth

Which is misleading in case of personal views.. where personal view have main design template and other functional views per user.

Always Personal views are dangerous.. as they won't update dynamically when the main design of the view is changed

Any help welcome

Personal VIEWS can't lose documents when replaced, because hey select docs based on a formula.  The new formula, if it matches the old, will return the same set of documents

Flders is another story.

teh real issue is that when design changes for SHARED PERSONAL ON FIRST USE, it does not auomatcially update the derived personal views.

The documents will be there in the db, it is just filtered thru views.

In case of personal views as I mentioned already, they don't get updated when main design of the view is altered. So you have to instruct users to remove the database from desktop and re-add (this is done when store on desktop option is used) or write a script which will go thru the db and delete the private views.

After that happens any user clicking on the view will create a new copy of the design and will see the documents.

For further information look into designer help on pvt views

I believe the original was done with SHARED Desktop,PERSONAL ON FIRST USE.

I used the same selection formula, the column data is different

This databse is used by hundreds of people

You mentioned there may be a way to remove the old db and add the new by script.

Do you have such an animal

It will require use intervention, but only to answer a Y/N question.

server := "...";
file := "...";
@Command([WindowWorkspace]);
@Command([AddIcon]; server : file);
@Prompt([OK]; "Remove icon"; "In a moment, Lotus Notes will ask yo if you wish to remove the database icon.  Please answer yes.  The button will automatically add an updated version immediately afterward.);
@Command([EditClear]);
@Command([AddIcon]; server : file);

I came up with this one

The environment stuff is used to hide the button once it has been pushed

@PostedCommand([FileCloseWindow]);
@PostedCommand([FileCloseWindow]);
@PostedCommand([WindowWorkspace]);
@PostedCommand( [AddDatabase] ;@DbName );
@PostedCommand([FileDatabaseRemove]);
@PostedCommand( [AddDatabase] ;@DbName );
@SetEnvironment("Pushed"; "Y")
