Hi, One of my Notes form (Config) has a Numeric field and it has the following formula

@If(@IsNewDoc & @IsDocBeingSaved; @Subset(@DbLookup("" : "Nocache"; ""; "(CINumber)"; CustomerID; 2); 1) + 1; ConfigID).

CINumber view has two columns with sorted descending.

This works fine when the document is saved in Lotus Notes... However, I've a webquery save agent which will create a document for this form when a request is submitted from the web. I want Lotus Script help for this formula

@If(@IsNewDoc & @IsDocBeingSaved; @Subset(@DbLookup("" : "Nocache"; ""; "(CINumber)"; CustomerID; 2); 1) + 1; ConfigID)

in your webquerysave agent simply extract the first document and add 1 to it


dim s as New NotesSession
dim db as NotesDatabase
dim view as NotesView
dim nav as NotesViewNavigator
dim note as NotesDocument

set db = s.CurrentDatabase
set view = db.GetView("(CINUMBER)")
set nav = view.CreateViewNav
set note = s.DocumentContext
ConfigID = nav.GetFirstDocument.ColumnValues(1) + 1' Returns 2nd col value

You don't need LotusScript for it.  The same formula will work in both NOtes and on the web.

@IsDocBeingSaved won't work on web and gives error msgs.

So, use LOtus Script for this.
