Need a sample Lotus notes web app

Hi,

I'm very new to web application and I'm tasked to build a web app using Notes 5.

This is a simple app where users are able to login to the application using the browser. Once authenticated, they will be a form for the user to key in an identification number. Once keyed in, and click Search. The system will search an excel spreadsheet according to the identification number and display some data on the form (on the browser).

Any idea on how this can be done (or any sample app similar to what I have described above).

Thanks,

Desperado..

Look in the sandbox, on Lotus Developer Domain :

http://www.lotus.com/ldd/sandbox.nsf

You'll surely find some examples there.

Building the webapp should not worry you, it's fairly simple, but 'searching an excel spreadsheet' requires a lot more work :-)

Is there a reason that the info MUST be in a excel spreadsheet.  

1) If you use domino's capability to be a wesite and a database system you have everything you need.  you build forms for your data and pages forms and or views to display it.

2) If you want to use excel within domino you need to be familliar with com.  

3) Otherwise you can use Domino and IIS in tandem and have easy access to excel via asp/aspx while still using the domino security model.
